Lou: Service Dog

Sharif & Lou

Service Dog

Lou was placed as a full Service Dog with a young man named Sharif in June 2021. Lou alleviates Sharif’s anxiety both at home and in public by being by his side, interrupting anxious behaviors, and offering deep pressure therapy. Lou thrives with him, keeping Sharif calm and grounded so they can take on the world together as a team.


“Lou has impacted my life in a myriad of ways that I couldn’t have expected. By being a constant of calmness, I’ve learned how simple life can be to both enjoy and explore.” 

~ Sharif W., Recipient
