My husband found this group online when we were doing our initial search on info about Boston Terriers.
I needed an emotional support dog & after tons of research on the breed I knew they were the 1 for me. Not only are they cute & full of personality I have learned how attentive, smart, quiet and awesome they are! There was no other choice for me! I had to actually fight for my right to attain permission to acquire a "medical dog" in my no dog neighborhood. They discriminated against me despite all the laws & medical information from my doctors. I suffer from several invisible disabilities seizures, asthma, 2 rare eye auto immune diseases that can take my vision away any time they flare, 3 heart arrhythmia's one was recently 80% fixed in a cardiac ablation surgery. I also have a very rare syndrome called Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) it affects my entire nervous system it makes me very sick & weak but worst of all it makes my anxiety really really bad. Thanks 2 the state I won in court for my right to have my little beauty at home. She's already helped tons!
Sometimes we call her a "little skunk" bc her little white patch makes her look like one.
Proud mom of Imani (Swahili for hope & faith( she was born 10/17/11. She is my service dog as I have a few invisible disabilities. Our adventure w/her started Jan.1st 2012 & it has been an amazing one. It's beyond rewarding!
