Tyler is a 9-year-old with Down Syndrome who loves dogs. Last July he lost his beloved dog and companion, Tootsie, due to canine epilepsy. He has greatly missed his buddy and companion that had been a gift to him when he was just five years old. We also had an older dog, Princess, (she was 11) who helped fill the void after Tootsie died.  Sadly a few weeks ago Princess had a stroke and passed away. Tyler was very sad to lose her as well.

We would like to get Tyler a new dog to be trained as a companion and therapy dog. We are looking at adopting a dog from a rescue in our area. By doing this we can help a dog in need, and get Tyler a new companion! We have found a dog, a three-month old puppy, that may be the fit for us. We have applied for adoption and are waiting to hear! Our goal here is to raise enough funds to adopt the dog, vet the dog, and train the dog both in obedience and as a therapy dog. Since this process is quite expensive we would love some help! Since Tyler does not have any other children at home, his dog was his constant companion and best friend. He still asks every day if Tootsie can come back home and gets sad when we re-explain that she cannot. We hope to fill this void with a new companion and give a puppy a wonderful home and great future with Ty. Please help us give this little girl a great new home and to give our little guy back a wonderful companion!
