Wade is 8 years old and was diagnosed with Epilepsy at 6 months old. His form of Epilepsy is caused by a chromosome duplication and is extremely hard to treat. Despite being on a significant dose of medication every day he still has many seizures. Many of his seizures occur at night which greatly increases his risk of suffocation. There are days when Wade will have 10 seizures in his sleep and often times we do not know until the next morning. Wade's neurologists have said that he is in need of a seizure alert dog for two reasons. One they will alert his parents when a seizure is coming on and the dog will be trained to roll Wade into a safe position so he doesn't suffocate. Applying for grants to help with the cost of a seizure alert dog can take up to 2 years and then you still have to wait the year to two years for the dog to be trained. By raising the funds ourselves we can speed up the process by a couple years. This is something that Wade needs as soon as possible. If you can find it in your heart to help our family keep Wade safe it would be greatly appreciated.

Update #2

Well things didn't quite work out as planned, but it may be even better. The litter we ended up putting a deposit on didn't have enough puppies for us to get a pup out of it. With that we went back to a pup that we had been looking at since the beginning. This puppy is in Florida and the dad is actually a seizure response dog. We were able to find a transport service that is delivering the puppy to us tomorrow evening, September 22. The puppy is a 9 week old male chocolate lab. We will start doing basic obedience and having him form the bond with Wade. During this time only Wade and I "Whitney" will be able to touch or command the puppy. It is vital that the puppy recognize Wade and has a solid bond with him before others can interact with him. Now that we have the puppy secured we just need to finish raising the money for the seizure response training. Thank you to everyone for helping make this possible.

We have placed a deposit on Wade's service dog thanks to all of you! He will be getting a yellow lab that was born on September 18th. In six weeks we will travel to South East South Dakota so the puppy can pick Wade. Then when he is 8 weeks old we will pick him up somewhere in Wyoming. We are incredibly grateful to all of you that have helped make this possible. We still have a long way to go to raise the money for the training, but I know we can o it! Once the dog is fully trained it will have 600 hours of training and will be just what Wade needs to help him.
