War Veterans Get Help From Service Dogs

Dogs are often therapeutic and helpful in the rehabilitation of war veterans.

Shadow is the only reason Jennifer Haeffner goes out in public these days. Before she and the Labrador-Burmese mountain dog teamed up, she essentially had been housebound for five years, considering herself lucky if she got out once a month for grocery shopping. Now, she and Shadow go out several times a week, and he wakes her up from nightmares and picks things up so she doesn’t stress her bad back and hips.
