Ruth Ann went to a shelter a few years ago to find the perfect, female small, white-haired dog. She came back with Thunder. An 80 pound Shepherd-Husky mix who had been abused and neglected.
Little did she know, that Thunder from the shelter would become not only a beloved pet, but also her husband Larry’s lifeline. Larry is a Vietnam veteran who suffers the effects of agent orange.
After suffering several strokes, Larry’s doctors told him he needed a service dog.
Rather than get a new dog, Ruth Ann and Larry decided to retrain Thunder and it ended up being a decision that positively impacted their lives.
The video chronicles Larry and Thunder’s friendship and how no other pet has ever come as close to Larry as Thunder.
