If there is one person that is doing wonderful deeds to assist first responders and soldiers who are going through Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) who is an unsung heroine, it is Emily Johnson who is the founder of the charity group called “Gateway K 9 Volunteers” which trains dogs of both genders to assist war veterans and first responders to get their health back.
This past Sunday, Emily was driving her vehicle on a road just outside of the Hillsboro city limits when she was involved in an auto accident.
Emily was not seriously injured in the accident but her dog that she was training named Percy who is a mixed Black and Golden Retriever ran away from the area where the accident happened.
Volunteers and concerned citizens went looking for Percy for the next few days but there was no sight of the dog for the next two days.
However thanks to the power of the social media website Facebook, a concerned citizen contacted Emily to bring her the good news that she found Percy two miles away from the auto accident.
Emily then went to reunite Percy after she found out where her dog was located.
Now that Emily and Percy are back together, Percy will be able to train her dog to finish his work of being owned by a first responders or war veterans to assist them in beating their anxiety and stress related troubles free of charge.
