Nigel the service dog trainee has officially been matched with his veteran handler, Dustin Potash, US Army. We are tremendously proud of this new team in training and we feel honored to be a party of their journey together.

Nigel is an adorable 1 year old pit bull mix adopted from Labs and More Rescue under the very generous Red Star Sponsor, UNITE Eurotherapy. He’s got the cutest puppy personality, but also really loves working to one day become a psychiatric service dog for a veteran in need. His ears don’t know where they are going yet, but we know he is aimed for GREAT things!
