DOG Name: BYRON
Team Since: 2021
Rachael is an engaging young woman with an independent spirit. Limited in mobility due to cerebral palsy and a fused spine, she needs a great deal of assistance with daily living skills. Rachael has muscle contractions in her legs, arms, hands and feet.
DAWSON is constantly by her side and assists her by retrieving things, opening doors, turning on lights and helping her in public. Rachael is very outgoing and DAWSON is a great help for her. She also loves to ride horses and gets especially excited when she can be off lead!
DAWSON and Rachael have been a working team since 2012. Rachael has achieved more independence with DAWSON’s help and is able to do volunteer activities with the paws4people foundation.
DAWSON will be retiring this year and Rachael will now have her successor dog, BYRON, by her side!
