Last year we adopted a quiet, sweet little pup named Lydia (now Octavia) who bonded with me very closely. We had to work through some fear issues- but she came around! Now, Octavia is a fully trained, multi-purpose Service Dog. She accompanies me everywhere, helping with my Anxiety, Chronic Pain, and other issues. Octavia is my partner and my lifeline- we are both fortunate to have found each other. On her “off” time, she plays with her fur siblings, or watches TV with us on the couch! – Emily B
