**UPDATE** Justice is now a working service dog!
Justice was 1/2 sponsored by the Greater Beaches VFW Post 3270, Jacksonville Beach.
05/29/10 – Justice just turned 6 mos old today. He is a handsome boy and goes to work daily with his trainer, Susan Bolton. They both work at Vystar Credit Union where he has quite a fan club!
This weekend he attended a Scrapbook retreat in Orange Park where he got to meet and greet lots of new friends and get reaquainted with friends who met him on his first day as a puppy in training!
He also met some great Navy Pilots who were in town for flight training exercises on the USS George HW Bush, an aircraft carrier, that was temporarily off the coast of Jacksonville.
Justice will be featured on Channel 12 / 25 news in Jacksonville on May 12 @ 6PM.
Justice is doing very well with his training. He mastered the basic commands of Sit, Down, Wait, Front, Heel, Side and of course his FAVORITE, EAT! He does most of these command by voice, whisper and hand signals. We start the pups training when they arrive at 8 weeks of age.
We train each morning using their breakfast. As we introduce each new command we hand feed breakfast. the puppies learn very quickly.
05/16/10 – This week was a very busy week for Patriot Service Dogs and Justice! On Wednesday he was featured on First Coast News on Hero Central!
(05/15/10) American Legion Post 137 Legion Riders had a fundraiser bike show where they presented Patriots with a check for $2500. Enough to sponsor a new puppy! This will cover the pup for their time in training in their puppy raiser home. It will cover all veterinarian costs along with heartworm preventatives and flea preventatives. Here is a link to the Jacksonville Times Union article from today’s paper. it was on the front page of the metro section.

Tim Shelton from the Legion Riders of Post 137 presented PSD with a check for $2500 for a second puppy sponsorship! We are very grateful for their continued support!

Country Goldens in Florahome, Florida has generously donated “Justice” to Patriot Service Dogs. We were given pick of the litter and encouraged to pick the pup we felt would fit our program the best.
Each and every pup did great and the choice was a tough one. “Justice” won out when he untied a shoe - we felt that was a sign of great things to come.
Contact Traci at Country Goldens to see more of their beautiful pups! We can’t thank them enough.
