Cooper City, Florida (PRWEB) July 11, 2014
Purebred Breeders is excited to announce we have donated a puppy from one of our reputable breeders to be trained as a service dog for MADE in Texas Assistance Dogs, a non-profit organization.
The mission of MADE in Texas Assistance Dogs is to train and place high caliber service dogs of all types for adults and children with disabilities to help them gain greater independence. They currently have six dogs in their training program and rely on generous donations from breeders for new puppies.
On June 30, 2014 Hailey Mauldin, founder of MADE went to Colorado to meet one of our Golden Retriever breeders. Mauldin temperament tested the litter and picked Denver, an 8-week-old puppy to become their future service dog.
“MADE is very grateful for how wonderful [Purebred Breeders] has been throughout this process, and for reaching out to us regarding donating a puppy,” said Mauldin.
Denver will be trained to help assist in relieving symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), an anxiety disorder that can develop after a traumatic event that threatens a person’s safety. PTSD is common in combat veterans, abuse victims, and victims of violent crimes.
PTSD service dogs are trained to assist in a medical crisis, retrieve medications, help cope with emotions, awake partners from nightmares and flashbacks, provide a sense of security, signal behaviors and interrupt repetitive or injurious behaviors, and to calm the handler when in a crowd or public places.
“We are honored to work with a great organization like MADE in Texas Assistance Dogs,” said Purebred Breeders spokesperson, Andrew Green. “We understand the importance of PTSD service dogs. Denver will not only be a forever friend and companion, but also a helping hand that can forever change a persons’ life. We hope to grow our relationship with MADE in Texas Assistance Dogs and continue to support their great cause.”
