Service Dog Training For Roxie

Two days after Frankie and Jude got married in August 2017 Frankie suffered a series of ischemic strokes. During the weeks following the strokes the significant damage to Frankies brain caused him to lose his eyesight, have multiple seizures, lose ability to move his limbs and caused difficulties with speech and clear thought processes. Over the last several months Frankie has been working hard to regain some of what was lost. He is unable to return to work and still needs assistance with things that most of us take for granted.Jude and Frankie recently adopted a dog named Roxie (aka Meatball) from the Myrtle Beach Humane Society. Not only did they save the life of this beautiful fur baby they found a special companion for Frankie to help him with his recovery.Roxie has an amazing personality and has been selected to receive special service animal training by Canine Angels which is an organization that trains service animals primarily for veterans with disabilities and children with autism. The cost for this specialized trading is typically $15,000-$20,000 but with a scholarship Roxie can receive this training for $5000.00. Frankie, Jude and Roxie need your help! Having lost Frankie’s income and the mounting medical bills your donation will help afford Frankie the opportunity to rebuild his life and gain independence. No donation is too small we can work together to make a lifelong difference for Frankie and Roxie.
