Lexie — Service
Lexie was adopted at a shelter when she was a pup. When I got her she didn’t know anything about how to behave as a regular pet, let alone how to be a service dog. Over the past three years, we’ve worked together as a team to become the best we could both be. Now, she has provided me more independence than I could have dreamed of! Thanks to Lexie’s help, I can now work a job, own a small business, AND even accomplish daily chores without needing human assistance. Life before Lexie was bleak and my future looked hopeless. I was in and out of psychiatric facilities and hospitals, and none of the treatments my medical team tried on me did any good. I owe all of my success to her! And I think it’s safe to say she appreciates having been rescued into such a loving, active home where she’s able to have a job and be with her person at all times. Both of our lives wouldn’t be the same without each other, and I’m thankful every day for our partnership. Lexie definitely saved my life, and continues to do so every day, and that’s why she deserves the title of Hero Dog!
