Service Dog for a Hero

My husband has served his country as a medic in the Army for over 19 years, and been a devoted father and husband. Anyone who knows him would tell you that he would sacrifice any and everything for his family and his country. Recently Johnny was diagnosed with PTSD and began the fight to deal with the mental strain he incurred while fighting for our freedoms. Just like the hero that he is, he was willing to make any sacrifice to get the help he needs. Over the next few months of his healing he would benefit from having a trained service dog to help during the process. However, before Johnny was diagnosed he gave his heart to our amazing family dog Polo. Polo would make an amazing service dog if he had the necessary training. Unfortunately most of the services to provide veterans with service dogs, require the use of a new dog. Thankfully we were able to find a training company that would use your existing dog! The only disadvantage is that the cost would be a little over 4,900 (that's with the service member discount). Johnny would never ask anyone to make such a sacrifice for what he would consider a luxury, but I happen to think he deserves it and more. So many people have been asking to help and constantly thank him for his service so I would like to allow you to do just that.Show Johnny the thank
s he deserves by helping us get his best friend Polo trained to help him recover.
