Well, a Bend woman has started a non-profit that will help pair veterans suffering from post traumatic stress disorder with service dogs.

 

Kristina Olson formed "Battle Buddies" last August.

 

"We recruit, in other words, rescue dogs capable of being service dogs and we get them trained and paired up with veterans.  They go through training.  It's roughly six to nine months to get the service dog ready.  So you'll be seeing a lot of service dogs running around soon as this area has a lot of veterans -- and a lot of dogs!"

 

Battle Buddies just started training dogs this year and they have two dogs that are participating so far.

 

To be eligible to get a service dog, you must have a service related disability.
