DOG Name: SCHROEDER
Team Since: 2021
Jim McManus, USMC Veteran
Jim was in the USMC for 3 years, where he worked as an aircraft firefighter around Harrier jets. His close proximity to these jets caused both of his eardrums to blow out, leaving him with significant hearing loss. He is also diagnosed with PTSD as a result of his service time. Jim experiences heightened anxiety when he leaves the house, as too much noise overwhelms his poor hearing. This causes him to be hypervigilant in social settings.
Jim met SCHROEDER in February 2021. SCHROEDER will help Jim as he continues his journey to recovery by anchoring to his anxiety and paying attention when in crowded places. This will help lessen Jim’s hypervigilance, and allow him to recover from the situation quicker. SCHROEDER will also help with behavior interruption. We look forward to watching this team grow together, and are happy to have them as part of the paws4people family!
