Jude adopted Lacey from the Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society and trained Lacey to be her service dog. Jude has significant hearing loss which can make day-to-day activities both frustrating and dangerous. Lacey and Jude worked through obedience, public access, and specific disability task training for over 600 hours before Lacey officially became a Service Dog. Now, Lacey can alert Jude to her tea kettle, the stove timer, her cell phone and cars in the driveway. Because of Lacey, Jude can enter new situations and feel safe, comfortable, and happy.
