Daisy “Rainbow” Hernandez

Daisy’s Story

Daisy “Rainbow” Hernandez was rescued from a shelter to fill the void to my human’s children. Their father was always gone to place like Iraq, Afghanistan, and other places for months and months at times. When he returned late 2008 something was different than his previous deployments. He was in constant pain and couldn’t get out of bed, the doctors kept feeding him pills after pills. He remained on active duty, but hid his physical and invisible wounds. However, I knew that I need to help him to save him from himself.

About WPP

Giving Rescue & Shelter Dogs a Second Tail*

Wounded Paw Project (WPP) is dispelling the belief that shelter dogs are not practical candidates as Emotional Support Dogs. This notion is based upon the idea that by breeding, one can control temperament, wellness, and longevity. Anthropological data does not support the idea that upbringing and race/color influences level of performance or – more importantly – constructive contributor to society. Shelter Dogs exemplify the military creed [dogma] of “Service before Self”.

*Service, Emotional, Therapy, Comfort, Mobility, Sexual Trauma, Courts, etc.
