Matt and Cole's Story...........

After my best friend showed me how her DAD, Ari helped her life and gave her reassurance in the crazy college world with the feeling that someone was always there for her. I knew that I would benefit from a DAD. I got Cole my freshman year of college, I had no way of knowing how different life would be with this pup by my side even watching another handler with their pup.  Cole knows me better than I know myself. He will alert in new and creative ways to get my attention and to make sure I’m on top of my game. My A1C went from a 10.8 to a 8.0 with him on the job. Additionally, He’s the kind of dog that if you’re having a bad day, he’s there with his tail wagging to cheer you up. That's due to the love that Kim put into each dog. Thank you Mama Kim for giving me my sweet boy!
