Alaina and Robyn

One of my good friends helps find permanent homes for dogs in shelters and recently shared a story with me that I want to share with you.service dog

One of her rescue dogs was due to become a service dog. That in itself is a great story, but the rest of this story draws at your heartstrings a bit. Robyn, the rescue, was due to become the service dog for Alaina. You can read more about Alaina on her blog page.
There’s a few excerpts below along with a video of Alaina.

“Alaina Bella is our sweet little 4 year old daughter. She was born with Amniotic Band Syndrome which caused the loss of her fingers, a clubfoot, vision impairment (even with glasses), speech and motor delays, and several learning disabilities. Life has been rough for this little one with the many surgeries and daily struggles; however, she is strong and brave and ambitious…”

“Robyn, her service dog in training, recently visit WalMart in a training session and did very well so we are very excited to see her moving forward. We were able to raise just barely enough to cover this month of training. It seems to be getting harder…”

If you would like to help in the effort to fund the service dog for Alaina please share the story on social media, with your friends and family, and/or donate if you are able.
