Please bare with me, I have never had to do this before. I recently lost my service dog to kidney failure. I am so heartbroken and lost now. I require a service dog to help with my many medical issues and also to keep me working and help me functioning in daily life. You forget how much these wonderful dogs do for us on a daily routine. I am so crushed right now and feeling helpless without my service dog. In order to obtain a new one I need to raise at least 3000 dollars to get one from a local breeder.. I am hoping to achieve this goal and perhaps a little more for equipment needed as well, since each dog are a different size and such.. This is extremely difficult for me to ask for help. I strive to be self sufficient and independent so that I am not a burden on others but alas I must ask for your help. With my numerous medical issues I need to get a dog before winter to allow time to work with and train us as a team. It is a 24/7 job but so worth it in the end and winter is extremely difficult for me. I was vague about equipment needs but for those who are interested I would have to buy a new harness with a walking handle on it where I'm visually impaired. I would have to get a collar ,special leash that's short and close to the harness the dog would need vet checks registration certification cost in the list will go on as things happen to come up. Thank you all in advance.
