DOG Name: ROCCO
Team Since: 2020
Kristi is diagnosed with PTSD, stemming from trauma endured while she was previously married. In the 10 years since these events, she has experienced insomnia, chronic nightmares, hypervigilance and often finds herself avoiding people and places that can trigger her anxiety. She is hopeful that having a Service Dog will give her the courage and confidence to leave her home and lead a more fulfilling life.
Kristi met ROCCO in November 2020, and a fast friendship blossomed. ROCCO will help Kristi by paying attention while they are in crowded places. This will help minimize her anxiety and startle reflex. He will also anchor and interrupt negative behaviors, allowing Kristi to regain the confidence to go about every day life, knowing that ROCCO is right beside her every step of the way. This team has a bright future together!
