Our next Tribute Puppy will be named TONEY in memory of paws4people®️ conditional client, Toney Lineberry. Toney was a champion wrestler in high school. Eight days after his eighteenth birthday he was involved in a life-threatening car accident and was left permanently paralyzed from the chest down. Toney did not allow his disability to rule his life. He became nationally recognized as a motivational speaker and scholar and he traveled throughout North America delivering motivational speeches about life, highway safety and staying positive.
During the course of his life he delivered his message to over one million people directly. Toney became a paws4people®️ conditional client in early 2015 and sadly passed away shortly after. During his short time with paws4people®️ he deeply touched those of us who met him and we are grateful that our paths crossed even for just a short time.
TONEY is an Assistance Dog for paws4vets Client, Thomia King, USMC Veteran.
