Heath, Jade’s human friend, told Bored Panda in an interview that Jade, a 35-pound Australian Shepherd and Shiba Inu mix who is 1.5 years old, has been enjoying a “second life” as a support dog.
Heath said that his fiancee runs a home health care facility in a short story he posted on Reddit, especially on the r/Dogs page (another excellent source of dopamine).
The woman and Jade had been friends for some time. The woman’s puppy passed away on the anniversary of the day her husbands life took an end, which was very sad. She was very upset by this.
He said that Jade might go to her client’s house with Heath’s girlfriend. It looks like Jade is being nice on purpose because she knows that she is old and weak. As Heath said in his post, she eats both breakfast and dinner with Jade.
Mrs. Riddle gave Jade a “mountain of toys” because the two seemed to get along so well. So, whenever Heath or his partner asks Jade if she wants to go to Mrs. Riddle’s house, Jade can’t help but jump, squeal, and run around.
Heath says that the customer said that she felt like her life now had a purpose. “While I’m at work, Jade stays with Mrs. Riddle. She is free Monday through Friday from 8 am to 4 pm. It looks like this is what Jade does for a living now. And it’s amazing to think that Jade changed on her own to become a therapy dog for someone who had lost a lot.
Heath said he got the idea to tell this story because he likes to write and talk about Jade in general. He thought that this would be interesting and fun for the cute dog lovers on Reddit.
Heath’s dog, Jade, was his friend when she was only 8 weeks old. He got her from a woman in Palmer, Alaska, in the hopes that she would help him feel better. Jade’s mom is a mix between an American Eskimo dog and a Shiba Inu, and her dad is an Australian shepherd.
Mrs. Riddle lost her dog on the anniversary of the day her husband passed away.
Heath told his girlfriend that Jade could help Mrs. Riddle if she went with her to see her.
He and his friend are presently boondocking in a truck sleeper he built as part of a “experiment in frugality and adventure.”
“Jade is cute, but she is also very protective of me and other people she thinks are part of our pack. She is very soft. Heath said more about Jade’s dogonality by saying, “As I write this, she’s curled up against my side. Caninality? Dogsona? You decide what to do.
Since she is part Eskimo dog, it shouldn’t be a surprise that she likes to run. Heath told her that he often puts a harness on her and lets her pull him down Anchorage, Alaska’s Coastal Trail on his skateboard.
It’s very important to Jade that she spends time with Mrs. Riddle.
She likes to play fetch. I bought her about 60 racquetballs for her first birthday, which I gave to her all at once. She went completely crazy as the balls bounced around.
Like Heath, she is a trained dog. She found beef liver treats at that time, and she has loved them ever since. Let’s get back to the story, though. Heath said in the comments that Mrs. Riddle was not her real name and that she had been a teacher in Texas. In terms of comments, everyone thought Jade and her story were great.
Heath got her when she was only 8 weeks old to help with his mental health.
How cute and small!
People thought it was great that Heath and his girlfriend share the happiness that dogs can bring just by being great people, and even more so for those who need it. And dogs seem to have a sixth sense for figuring out who needs help.
One commenter said that unconditional love is the only kind of love that dogs can understand. Even though, as a species, we don’t really deserve it, we’re glad we do. Others thought it was kind and generous of Heath to let Mrs. Riddle spend the day with Jade. It looks like Jade enjoys it as well, so everything works out great.
The 1.5-year-old Jade enjoys playing with balls, jumping about, eating beef liver treats, and, of course, hanging out with Mrs. Riddle. Overall, it seems to work because Jade also seems to like it.
What a great dog! Jade is great, so let’s hope the best for her.
