Reeses Pieces

Lancaster, Pennsylvania

She helps me greatly with my depression, before I bought her I was severely depressed, I didn’t want to do anything. After I got her, my mom noticed a great change in my mood that I wasn’t so depressed anymore. Something she wasn’t trained as was a heart dog, but last year I was laying on my bed watching TV, and she came to me and put her front paws and head on my chest. I looked at her and pushed her off, but she came right back and did the same thing. I called my mom at work and she told me to call the ambulance cause something might be wrong with my pulmonary hypertension. It ended up being an attack of the hypertension and she might have saved my life.
