Default GSD Military PTSD Service Dog For Adoption

This is Bella

She is a rescue of mine, i've had her for quit a bit of time, i cannot seem to let her go or find a right match for her. She's a 3 year old PTSD service dog, who's very well trained & just came back from a tour in Afghanistan with a fellow Marine. She's up for adoption, id love for her to go to a service member who could use her & whats she's been trained to do her whole life! She loves working & pleasing. She will be by your side every second. Id love to keep her as a "pet" but she's much happier with her vest on & working. Ive been taking her as a therapy dog visiting nursing homes, schools & hospitals to kinda just get her out there & "working" to keep her happy. Im wiling to give her to someone who needs her.. Reply or PM me if interested, We are in San Diego area.

Have you tried contacting the local VA hospital, or VFW? They might be able to put you in touch with someone in need.

My daughter, former military and RN , works for the VA. She sees a lot of servicemen returning from overseas...they need dogs for soldiers. Problem is, they have no one to screen them.

Hi k9luver! I realize this is a long shot but I am looking for a PTSD service dog for myself (veteran who young and service connected 100% for PTSD) and live in the San Diego area. Bella sounds amazing, is she still with you? Thanks!

I am a veteran with hearing loss, post stift man syndrom and manisch
depression. I am looking for such a dog. She would have it very good by me. lots of work outs, playing and most of all she would be my helper.

I live in germany and I am willing to come to you and pick her up.
