German Shepherd Massey, Angel Mobility Assistant Dog
by Alice Richter
This is Massey, a mobility assistant dog. She was born next to my hospital bed (in my home).
I had a car accident & broke everything from my neck to my pelvic bone. They would lay her on my body cast as a baby.
She has been my best friend, my comfort when in pain, my helper when I drop the remote, my support when I cant make it to the bed, my strength when I feel I just cant take it another day.
So now she has put me on my path of training service dogs for others who need help like I do. SHE GAVE ME A PURPOSE.Total German Shepherd
What a wonderful dog your Massey is. And what a story. So she has had a purpose to serve you her whole life - I can't imagine the bond you two must have. Absolutely fantastic!
German Shepherds are incredible dogs no doubt but what a little angel she is for you. And I am sure she enjoys nothing more than helping you too.
Fantastic! Really! And now you have a purpose too in training other assistance dogs. So your experience has come full circle - what a wonderful story. I would love to see the two of you "in action".
I wish you and your sweet companion German Shepherd, Massey, nothing but the best in the future. If you ever have the opportunity to make a video of you guys training and would like to share it - please send it here and we would be happy to share it with others!
