I am currently in high school and am looking forward to getting a hearing-alert dog. I have profound hearing loss in both ears. With my hearing aids on, it can still be challenging to hear when someone is behind me, the phone ringing, or someone knocking at the door.
Right now my family helps to alert me if I’ve missed something, but when I go to college I will need the extra support of a hearing alert dog. I love animals, especially dogs, and I hope to be a veterinarian. I currently foster animals for the Humane Society and Big Hearts for Big Dogs Rescue.
I am thankful for Topaz Assistance Dogs for helping me get a dog that is trained just for me. My dog is even getting acclimated with horses and boats so that I can bring it on all of my adventures.
