A Pets For Vets Match Story

Matthew and Laela

Meet Veteran Matthew and his new companion Laela, a brindle boxer mix. Matthew approached Pets for Vets to find a companion dog to help him deal with PTSD and anxiety issues.

He waited very patiently while we searched for his companion and his patience paid off. Laela is a very loving and affectionate dog who bonded with Matthew right away. They spend their days going on walks, chilling out at home and being best buddies.
