BLIZZARD – SAN ANTONIO

PTSD, TBI, MEDICAL ALERT, PSYCHIATRIC

Meet Cool Blizzard!!

Blizzard is a 1.5 year old, 60lbs., neutered Husky Lab Mix.

Blizzard is a sweet boy who knows some commands and is great with other dogs and cats. He is very gentle and sweet boy.

His loving and attentive demeanor would make him great as a PTSD Service Dog, in fact, in most areas of service work.  His beautiful eyes are whiteish blue, making him a strikingly pretty dog.

Blizzard currently lives in a foster home with other dogs and loves to play.

Blizzard would be suited for a handler older than 7 years of age (regardless of gender), who would be able to exercise him regularly. For example, 15-20 minutes of activity, such as aerobics, or jogging daily. Spending a good part of the day on their feet.

Blizzard’s rescue requires an application process and a signed training contract with Service Dog Express.

We do not transport dogs as there are numerous dogs across the country that need a forever home and have the potential to be a Service Dog.  Our dogs have been assessed as potential Service Dogs but have not been trained yet.  That training occurs when paired with their handler.  This enhances the bond between dog and owner.
