Jesse rarely left the house before he got his service dog, Jag. Jesse suffers from PTSD and had been unable to enjoy things with his wife and children because his panic and anxiety would take over in public places. When Jesse was placed with Jag from Tender Loving Canines, he was able to connect again with society because she's able to keep people at a distance and alerts Jesse when his anxiety is getting high so he can focus and stay in control. He's able to connect and function with his family again.

Special thanks to Tender Loving Canines
