Dog Of The Week
This week's Dog Of The Week is Black, a one-year-old standard poodle. He's been on Dogster since May 31st, 2009.
Black went from a stray running the streets to becoming a service dog for the member's son who has autism.
Black was a stray running the streets. His picture was in the newspaper for adoption at the local pound and I lucked out and was the first there.
He went right up to my son who is on the Autism spectrum. I have been interested in getting and training a service dog for my son and Black seemed a good candidate.
So far Black has settled in and loves all the kids. Having him around calms my son down when he is anxious or upset. Black right away took to him. He is wonderful. The chances of a pound dog to work out this good are almost nill.
Black was sent to us I am sure. He is a true gift from God.
It sounds like this was a match made in heaven. We wish Black and his new family a long and happy life together.
