Husky — Shelter

Location: Alexandria, Virginia

Husky is my emotional support and diabetes dog. He helps keep me calm when I start to feel stressed, when I am walking him he will stop and reaches for my arm with his nose. I have arthritis from my lower back to my knees and he senses when my arthritis is acting up because he will go the front door of my apartment complex and sit and gives me an awoo. When I go to my doctor’s appointments he means against me and puts his paw on my leg. At the office he stays by my side or at my feet. When I adopted him 5 years ago I adopted more than a pet, he’s my best friend and my whole life.
