LUCKY GIRL – San Antonio Area

PTSD, TBI, PSYCHIATRIC, LIGHT MOBILITY, MEDICAL ALERT, 

Meet Lucky Girl!!

Lucky Girl is a 4 year-old, 65 lbs., American Staffordshire Terrier.

Lucky Girl is VERY affectionate and she loves to petted and touched.  She would be wonderful for all the above-mentioned conditions because of her intelligence combined with her gentle, nurturing nature. She has already had solid training, knows many basic commands, and is very motivated with treats.

Lucky Girl is great on leash with NO pulling and prefers to be close to her person. She will “stay” and “come” when called. She is also calm with other dogs and likes to play with her current dog mates!  Her foster states that Lucky Girl would do best in an only dog environment. The foster has 3 dogs and has had no issues however Lucky Girl likes to be close to her foster and the older dog does not like it.  Lucky Girl bonds to her “person” so closely that other dogs would be jealous!

Lucky Girl would be suited for a handler older than 13 years of age (regardless of gender), who’s activity level is equal to walking for 30 minutes twice daily spending a good part of the day on their feet in public with their Service Dog!

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.
