Tim received his service dogs, Jack, in July 2016 and Jack has became a very important part of his life. As Tim often shares, “Jack has already made a difference in my life; I'm distracted when I'm getting upset about something and he's there to give me a hug when no one else can. Jack helps assist me while I'm in large crowds (crowds are not usually my friend).” He continues, “Since becoming a part of Puppy Jake Foundation, I've experienced things that I previously had not and while going through training, met fellow service members that have also became a part of my life. Puppy Jake has built a bond with myself and other graduate Veterans, that I will never forget! I look forward to being a part of this family for many years to come, and once you become a part of Puppy Jake, you will always be family!”
