This is a beautiful story of a rescued dog who has brought invaluable healing to her owner, and acquired the love and home she may otherwise not have found. We know all too well the reality of pets who need to be rescued from being a statistic…but this is a story of how a pet has rescued one of our own.

Blade Anthony served as a medic in the Marine Corp. During his tour, it was his job to save the lives of his brothers and sisters-in-arms. When he returned home from Iraq, he found himself feeling alone, out of place, angry at people who did not seem to understand, suffering from PTSD, nightmares and on the verge of committing suicide. Now it was his life that needed saving. Blade sought out Pets for Vets and found DD, who he claimed saved him from being just another statistic.
