  1. i’m 70% medically rated by the VA for severe PTSD. i’m interested in finding out more info on the possible benefit a service dog can enhance my life on a daily basis. every service dog company i try to contact either tells me they have up to a 10 year waiting list or that they don’t work with Vets in the New England area. do you have any more comprehensible info that can help me at least determine if i’m a candadite to benefit from a service dog?

  2. I was wondering how you choose your dogs for veterans? I have a collie mix that I love but I find that I am not able to give him the time and attention that he needs because I have terminal cancer. He is still a puppy, he won’t be two until April. He loves people children especially , he tries to herd them. Guess it is in his genes I took him in when He , Bandit, was just a puppy from someone who got him and decided they didn’t want him. I would love if he could find a loving owner and a purpose. He is very caring and stays close to my side when ever I am feeling bad, he lays his head on my lap and tries to comfort me. He is a sweet loving dog and I just want him to find someone who will love him so I can know that he is going to be happy.

    • Hello Deborah,

      Thank you so much for sharing your story. Your collie mix sounds like a wonderful dog. We typically look for dogs who have the “right” temperament for the job. We would need to evaluate the dog ourselves to be considered for our program. Some of the things that we look for in the dog would be one that does not have a high prey drive, is on the lower energy scale, loves children, can easily settle down, has excellent house manners and does not have separation anxiety. Please contact my Vice President, Julie Plummer at Julie@onewarriorwon.org if you would like to discuss this further. And thank you for contacting us at One Warrior Won.
