Every day, this dog visits the elderly woman to cheer her up.Jade, a 35-pound, 1.5-year-old Australian Shepherd and Shiba Inu mix, has been enjoying a “second life” as a support dog, according to Heath, Jade’s human buddy who agreed to an interview with Bored Panda.
Heath stated in a brief narrative posted on Reddit, specifically on the r/Dogs topic, that his fiancee manages a home health care facility (another excellent source of dopamine).The woman and Jade had known each other for quite some time.Unfortunately, the woman’s puppy died on the anniversary of her husband’s pa.ss.n.g. She was very upset about this.He suggested that Jade accompany Heath’s girlfriend to her client’s home.Jade appears to be being intentionally kind because she is aware of how elderly and frail she is.According to Heath’s post, she shares breakfast and dinner with Jade.
Mrs. Riddle also gave Jade a “mountain of toys” because the two apparently got along so well.As a result, whenever Heath or his partner asks Jade if she wants to go to Mrs. Riddle’s, she can’t help but bounce, squeal, and rush around.
According to Heath, the customer remarked that her life now had meaning.”When I’m at work, Jade goes to Mrs. Riddle’s house.She is available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.Jade appears to have made this her full-time profession!And it’s incredible to think that Jade voluntarily evolved into a therapy dog for someone who had experienced a great deal of loss.
Heath said he got the idea to tell this story because he enjoys writing and talking about Jade in general.In his opinion, the adorable dog lovers on Reddit would find this interesting and enjoyable.Jade was Heath’s canine companion when she was only 8 weeks old.He obtained her from a woman in Palmer, Alaska, in the hopes that she would improve his mental health.Jade’s mother is a cross between an American Eskimo dog and a Shiba Inu, and her father is an Australian shepherd.
Heath suggested that his girlfriend bring Jade along to see Mrs. Riddle for assistance, and the two hit it off right away.The two are currently boondocking in a sleeper he built for his truck as part of his “frugality and adventure experiment.”
“Jade is adorable, but she’s also very protective of me and others she considers to be members of our pack.She is very cuddly.”She’s curled into my side as I’m writing this,” Heath said of Jade’s dogonality.Caninality?Dogsona?You make the call.
It should come as no surprise that she enjoys running because she is part Eskimo dog.Heath revealed that he frequently straps a harness to her and lets her pull him down Anchorage’s Coastal Trail on his skateboard.Jade spends a lot of time with Mrs. Riddle, which is very important to her.She likes to play fetch.I bought her about 60 racquetballs for her first birthday and gave them to her all at once.She went completely insane as the balls bounced around!
She, like Heath, is a trained dog.She discovered beef liver treats at the time and has been obsessed with them ever since.But let us return to the story.In the comments, Heath clarified that Mrs. Riddle was not her real name, but that she was a former Texas teacher. In terms of comments, everyone adored Jade and her story.The fact that Heath and his girlfriend are spreading the joy that dogs can bring simply by being amazing people, and even more so for those in need, was deemed amazing by the public.And when it comes to determining who needs assistance, dogs appear to have a sixth sense.
According to one commenter, the only kind of love that dogs can understand is unconditional love.Despite the fact that we do not truly deserve it, we are grateful for it.Others praised Heath for his generosity in allowing Mrs. Riddle to spend the day with Jade.Everything appears to be going swimmingly for Jade, so everything is in order.Jade, who is 1.5 years old, enjoys playing with balls, jumping around, eating beef liver treats, and, of course, spending time with Mrs. Riddle.Overall, it appears to be a success because Jade enjoys it as well.
