Jade, a 35-pound, 1.5-year-old Australian Shepherd and Shiba Inu mix, has been enjoying a “second life” as a support dog, according to Heath, Jade’s human partner who agreed to an interview with Bored Panda.
Heath mentioned in a brief narrative posted on Reddit, namely on the r/Dogs subject, that his girlfriend oversees a home health care facility (another excellent source of dopamine).
This is the account of Jade, who has been leading “a second life” and assisting a senior citizen in need. Reddit recently released it online.
Jade and the woman had been friends for a long time. Sadly, the woman’s dog passed away on the day that marked her husband’s passing. This made her quite angry.
He recommended that Jade go to Heath’s girlfriend’s client’s house with them. Jade appears to be acting delicately on purpose since she is conscious of how old and frail she is. She shares meals with Jade for breakfast and dinner, according to Heath’s report.
Mrs. Riddle also gave Jade a “mountain of toys” because the two apparently got along so well. As a result, whenever Heath or his colleague asks Jade whether she wants to go to Mrs. Riddle’s, she can’t help but jump, shriek, and hurry about.
According to Heath, the buyer noted that her life now had meaning. “When I’m at work, Jade goes to Mrs. Riddle’s house. She is accessible Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jade appears to have made this her full-time profession! And it’s incredible to think that Jade deliberately grew into a therapy dog for someone who has experienced a tremendous lot of grief.
Heath stated he got the notion to share this story since he likes writing and talking about Jade in general. In his view, the adorable puppy lovers on Reddit would find this informative and delightful.
Jade had been Heath’s dog since she was only 8 weeks old. In the hopes that she might improve his mental health, he obtained her from a woman in Palmer, Alaska. While her father is an Australian shepherd, Jade’s mother is a hybrid of an American Eskimo dog and a Shiba Inu.
In order to help Mrs. Riddle, Heath recommended that his girlfriend bring Jade over. The two hit it off right away.
He built a sleeper for his car as part of his “frugality and adventure experiment,” and the two are currently boondocking in it.
“Jade is a sweetheart, but she’s also quite protective of myself and those she considers to be members of our pack.” She is really cuddly. “She’s cuddled into my side as I’m writing this,” Heath said of Jade’s dogonality. Caninality? Dogsona? You make the call.
It should come as no surprise that she adores jogging considering she is half Eskimo dog. Heath explained that he regularly puts a leash on her and has her pull him down Anchorage’s Coastal Trail on his skateboard.
She likes to play fetch. I purchased her around 60 racquetballs for her first birthday and presented them to her all at once. She went completely insane when the balls bounced about!
She is a trained dog, just like Heath. When she first discovered beef liver snacks, she became completely enamored with them. But let’s get back to the narrative. Heath reaffirmed in the comments that Mrs. Riddle was not her true name and that she had been a Texas teacher in the past. Everyone expressed appreciation for Jade and her tale in the responses.
The fact that Heath and his girlfriend are spreading the joy that dogs can offer simply by being good people, and much more so for those in need, was regarded outstanding by the public. And when it comes to determining who needs assistance, dogs appear to have a sixth instinct.
According to one commentator, the only form of love that dogs can understand is unconditional love. Despite the fact that we do not fully deserve it, we are grateful for it. Others praised Heath for his compassion in allowing Mrs. Riddle to spend the day with Jade. Everything seemed to be going swimmingly for Jade, so everything is in order.
Jade, who is 1.5 years old, likes to jump around, play with balls, consume goodies made of beef liver, and of course, hang out with Mrs. Riddle. Jade also found it to be enjoyable, so it appears to be a success overall. Jade is beautiful, and we wish her all the best. What a fantastic dog!
