    Maria & Mylo

    In 2017, after my medical retirement, life became an overwhelming struggle. The weight of PTSD, anxiety, and depression confined me to the walls of my home. Then, I made a pivotal decision - I chose to seek a service dog. My loyal companion, Mylo, became my saving grace. He infused my days with purpose, pulling me from the depths of despair. With Mylo by my side, I found the strength to step beyond my front door, and in his unwavering presence, I discovered a renewed sense of hope and a source of boundless love and understanding. Mylo is more than a service dog; he is my lifeline, my confidante, and my guardian angel. His paw prints are forever etched on the canvas of my heart, a testament to the transformative power of companionship, love, and unwavering support. Today, I stand here, not alone, but surrounded by a community that understands the profound impact of a faithful friend. I am forever grateful for Mylo and the gift he has given me.
