This gentle and extra sweet 1.5 year old shepherd mix was adopted by our team from Labs and More Rescue out of San Diego, CA. She’s around 45 pounds, the perfect size for our program and her work as a psychiatric service dog. She is quietly confident and very social. We are so thankful to be able to give her a new life of purpose as a psychiatric service dog trainee thanks to the support of Morrow Legacy Foundation! Our team is thrilled to have her in our program, and have affectionately nicknamed her “EmDee” for short.

EmDee is currently working with her veteran handler, Richie Barrow, US Navy Ret. and the pair are expected to graduate our program in Spring 2021.
