Certain Traits Make Particular Breeds More Ideal Than Others
While all dogs are awesome and have a unique way of turning frowns upside down, some breeds have traits that allow them to support a variety of challenges commonly faced by our veterans. For example, some dogs are better at performing certain tasks and assisting vets with physical limitations. Others are more adept at providing support for those suffering from stress or psychological trauma.
We’ve listed 5 of the top dog breeds commonly paired with our former service members as well as the characteristics they have that make them highly useful companions.
Pomeranians make perfect service dogs despite their size. While they’re not as effective in strength-related tasks, Pomeranians are very smart and are easier to carry around, which makes them more convenient to bring.
- Golden retriever
With their gentle nature and intelligence, golden retrievers are fast learners and one of the best breeds to pair up with veterans. They’re sweet and not as intimidating as other breeds, which makes them great companions if you want a breed to go with you to public locations.
- German shepherd
Despite their large size, German shepherds are gentle, fiercely loyal, and can form strong bonds with their owners. They’re one of the first breeds that come to mind when you think of service dogs to assist veterans with. Their sense of smell is top-notch. They’re one of the smartest breeds around.
- Pit bulls
Pit bulls have a negative stigma surrounding them because of how they were used in the past. This breed, however, is one of the most loving ones out there as well as one of the most hard-working. Pit bulls are loyal, versatile, and can be useful service or emotional support dogs for veterans.
- Border collies
Out of all dog breeds, border collies rank at the top of the pyramid when it comes to intelligence. They make for wonderful service dogs due to their high energy and restless nature. Border collies are an extremely loving breed and as hardworking as dogs come.
Touch the Hearts of Our Suffering Veterans
For veterans whose lives are bogged down by daily struggles, the warm smiles and wagging tails of their beloved canine friends may provide momentary comfort but not make their worries go away. These are our former service members who are suffering from homelessness, unemployment, disabilities, and illnesses, including mental health conditions.
