Review for Alpha Bravo Canine™, Philadelphia, PA, USA
Jenn Green, and Alpha Bravo Canine, LITERALLY, Saved. My. LIFE! I am an 8 year, active duty, US Marine combat veteran. I was discharged from the Marine, medically, in 2011, and began struggling with PTSD symptoms about a year later. It got to a point where I lost jobs, lost my family, lost what the average person would consider, "everything". I was on the verge of taking my own life, I literally got to that point, where becoming one of the "22 A Day", was a true possibility... However, everything turned around when Alpha Bravo Canine, Jenn Green, and ultimately, Cooper, (my English Lab PTSD Service Dog), all came into my life. Cooper is my best friend, and a literal extension of myself... Our bond is something indescribable to anyone who has never had a Service Dog, and yes, I mean a Service Dog, and not a pet dog. I say this because I have had dogs all throughout my life; however, Cooper and I have a bond that I can only best describe as symbiotic relationship at its best; I take care of him, and he takes care of me... He knows; any time I am "off", or not feeling myself, he just knows; any time I am having a nightmare, he just knows; and any time I need him, he just knows. It is honestly like he can hear my thoughts on some level and does exactly what I need, exactly when I need... It's almost as if Jenn somehow gets this dogs to understand their purpose and what they're needed for, during their training process, and these dogs jump in full force to save us veterans from the demons and traumas plaguing our hearts' and minds'... Without Jenn, ABC, and of course, Cooper, I honestly do not know where I would be in this life today... If you want to support an organization that truly 100% SAVES LIVES; Alpha Bravo Canine is IT!
