Panda & Jethro and Mick (QLD)

I adopted Panda mid 2019 when she was 3 mths old as a rescue dog. She is Staffy x Kelpie. I adopted her as a PTSD assistance/companion dog. I have PTSD, depression, anxiety, nightmares, survivors guilt and adjustment disorder from 25 1/2 years service in Army and 4 wars. She is so in tune with me and is always there when I’m having a hard time

Panda sleeps on my bed and every night cuddles up to me. She always place her head on my legs, or if its a bad night on my chest. If I have a nightmare I always wake to find her snuggles into my neck to reassure me I am ok.

A few weeks ago, I adopted another dog from QSAR. Jethro. He is 4mths old and is a Shar Pei x Bull Mastiff. From day 1 he played with Panda like they had been friends for ever and is also very in tune with me and my needs from my canine companions. He also rests his head on a different part of my body depending on my moods when sleeping.

Without Panda and Jethro, I can honestly say I would not be here today.
