DOG Name: STANLEY
Certification:
AD-MED-PSY
In Training Team Since: 2019

Marten Wallace, USA Veteran

Marten spent 12 years with the Army on Active Duty, before transitioning to a Department of Defense Acquisition Corps position, and deployed while in both positions. He is diagnosed with PTSD. He has a strong startle reflex, and is hypervigilant. He experiences flashbacks, and avoids places that remind him of his past events. He also suffers from nightmares, and has trouble getting a good nights’ sleep because of it. While Marten remains active, and involved in his community, he feels like he is detached from people, and has trouble maintaining relationships. Marten believes an Assistance Dog will help lessen his anxieties, and allow him to live a more productive life.

STANLEY took one look at Marten in July 2019, and knew that was his person! STANLEY is a handsome Golden Retriever who will be there to help Marten daily. He will wake him from his nightmares, allowing for more restful sleep. STANLEY will also pay attention in crowded places, and alert Marten to people coming up behind him, so he isn’t startled so easily. Together, Marten and STANLEY will make their mark on their local community, and continue to build lasting relationships with those around them. We are thrilled to have this pair in our paws4people family.
