Glory and Linton

Glory recently moved to Western PA. She enjoys music, church volunteer activities, however arthritis and hearing loss began limiting her activities. A lifelong animal lover, Glory hoped a service dog would help her feel more confident and secure. She wanted to be more active outside the house. Linton has a remarkable skill set and focus that are sure to be valuable assets to Glory. He assists her by retrieving items, and providing support and balance when she walks. One of the quieter students in this fall’s Team Training session, Glory’s been very focused and determined to make the most of this opportunity. Already the two of them have built a strong and caring relationship. You only have to see Linton’s eyes as he watches Glory to see how quickly and completely he has committed to her.
