Good news! It was love at first sight for all of them — Jed, Anna and Recon.
The three met for the first time on Monday at Liberty Station, just a meet and greet with no expectations. Jed and Recon just clicked and the canine walked by the tall, former Marine’s side, glancing up occasionally just to check in.
Jed has been searching for a service dog to help him live a more independent life. Recon just started his final training, so the word went out. Who knew it would happen so fast!
Recon has more work to do before he’s ready to meet Jed’s special needs. The two will begin their bonding with weekend playtime beginning next month. We’re hoping for a May/June placement. Tune in for blogs from Jed and Recon.
More happy news: Jed and wife Anna are expecting a daughter in June. Recon gets a new little sister as well as doting parents of his own.
