Tuesday is no ordinary golden retriever; he is Luis’s energetic service dog, a help and support in everything he does. Luis has suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) since he returned from war in Iraq, but thanks to Tuesday, he’s able to function far better than he could before. From the beginning until the end of each day, Tuesday is right by Luis’s side to help with basic household tasks, go on public outings together, and even visit other veterans to try to help them as well. Thanks to Tuesday, Luis feels safe and calm, and thanks to Luis, Tuesday lives a fulfilling and exciting life!
