Dundee was donated to PAD by Animal Lifeline, located in York Springs, PA. ¬†He was raised in Lititz, PA by founder of PAD, Linzey Zoccola, her mom Gail Diem, and a handful of dedicated volunteer trainers. ¬†Dundee was preliminarily matched with his partner in the summer of 2011. ¬†Laurel is a young woman living in Metro Detroit, MI area with multiple disabilities. ¬†She needed a dog that would be able to provide a variety of tasks from medical alerting to balance work. ¬†October 2011 Laurel and Dundee finally met and it was love at first sight. ¬†PAD Dundee instantly attached himself at her side and has been there ever since. ¬†In just a few short months he’s begun to alert her of rises in her blood pressure and heart rate, asthma related episodes, and also provide uniquely timed grounding to calm her through medical episodes. ¬†These are all tasks on top of the counter balance work he provides during walking, and retrieving objects off of the ground or on counters out of reach! ¬†We are eager to watch this team grow in the future as their bond only strengthens!
