Putnam Service Dogs placed Brook in November 2020 with a family that lived on constant pins and needles. Their 11 year old daughter suffers from epileptic seizures. Everyone in the household (4 people, including the 11 year old girl) lived in dread, waiting for the next seizure to come.
In walked our Princess Brook, and she instantly took charge. Her intelligent, loving nature led her to walk right up to the 11 year old, and introduce herself. Now they are inseparable companions, and sleep together every night – the first uninterrupted sleep Brook’s young recipient has had since being diagnosed with epilepsy. Brook is right with her through the night, tucked against her at the foot of her bed.
Brook’s 11 year old charge now has so much more independence and confidence. She used to be afraid to do anything, for fear a seizure would come and she’d be alone. Now she has Brook. She’s no longer afraid of being alone, because Brook is right there with her.
The family continues to bond with Brook, and the little girl’s Mom is learning how to be an effective handler of Brook. The love for, and wonder at Brook, continue to grow each day.
Brook has changed lives.
