Daniel & Bear

Matched: 4/17/2016

Daniel is an Army veteran who served in Iraq, and currently works for a precision aerospace fastener company. He and his wife, Jennifer, along with their two boys, will soon be moving to a new house in Willis, Texas. Daniel considers himself blessed, but is still dealing with emotional and physical conditions related to his service. He wanted the companionship of a loyal four-legged friend.

A caring woman named Keri Cooper discovered Bear at the Montgomery County Animal Shelter, and after foster-homing him for several months, contacted Pets for Vets Houston to see if Bear was the right kind of dog for placement with a veteran. Pets for Vets’ evaluation showed Bear to be smart, sweet and loyal to a fault.

He and Daniel were matched in early February. Dogs sometimes need some time to adjust to a new owner, but Bear “adopted” Daniel as his battle buddy within the first few hours after they met.
