Pet of the Week
Pet of the Week photo Breed:Mixed
Location:Spokane, WA
OwnerChristy Gerhardt
I found Mattie wandering on the side of the road about 7 years ago. I was looking for signs of her owner wanting to find her, but there were none, so I took her into my home. I put Mattie on a healthy diet and she transformed in a gorgeous dog! My doctor suggested she would be a perfect service dog for my PTSD. Having Mattie by my side these past 7 years has allowed me to live a normal life with confidence. Not a day goes by that I don't hear "What a beautiful dog you have...what kind is she?" I proudly answer, "She's a mutt...the only one of her kind.
