About the campaign
A partner in my recovery and walk with PTSD, a service dog who will be loyal to me in my pursuit to overcome, one who will be constant through the change, a reliable companion to be by my side as a help and a joy.
This search is still on. Originally I had found a dog named Ubbi, unfortunately, due to several reasons, including time restraints, that door seems to have closed.
My search continued. Until I recently contacted a trainer in my home state of Connecticut named Chris. We discussed the requirements of the training I would need and the temperament of the dog I was looking for.
I told him that I have been looking for a dog to walk with me through the trials of having PTSD, one who could handle the panic attacks and troubled nights while also being a faithful companion.
Chris responded that he believed he had the perfect dog for me…
The Story of my future service dog, Lex:
Lex is around three years old. He is trained, qualified, and serviced, plus he has already had valuable experience in service work. Chris said that Lex is incredibly sweet and has a very gentle, calm temperament.
Yet, as we talked he stated that there was one thing I needed to know about Lex. Tragically, the young girl Lex had been servicing did not recover from her illness and Lex had to be repurchased by the trainer.
Lex experienced hardship and sadness upon his return. I understand more than most the effect such hardship can have on a person, and dogs are not any more impervious to this than we are.
I would love nothing more than to give this wonderful, sweet canine a second chance at service. Instead of an aid in my recovery, I would have a partner through it and be as much of a help to Lex as he would be to me.
Lex is being sold for the price that Chris repurchased him for and of that total I already have half! That means I only need to raise $5,000 more instead of the $35,000 I originally would have had to raise. My goal is to adopt Lex while I am home in Connecticut before I leave for camp.
That would be in between May 18th and the 28th. Though it seems like a short time I am confident that with help it can be done. If you would like to help me and Lex please considering donating to our cause and praying for us!
Thank you so much!
