What you see is what you get, a cuddly smooth coat or a wiry and furry ruff coat little terrier who will be devoted to his master until the end of his days. They are people loving dogs who are not content to live solely with another dog as a companion. They adore feeling the warmth of a hand gently stroking their coast and they will gladly sit still for a prolonged and heavenly massage every day. The only thing better than one Jack Russell is two, three, or four which more than doubles the entertainment full of nonstop action of innumerable proportion.
Zenit had found bomb after bomb at this point.” Even after army men and women get their army dog back, they still take care of them like they did in the Army. They walk, feed, play, and take them to get groomed. They stay partners. The text says,” He attended to the dog’ s every need, from grooming to making sure Zenit didn’t get dehydrated.

These flashbacks cause panic or anger attacks that lead to shootings or suicide, and though there is no permanent solution to PTSD, there are many ways to help (Gutierrez et. al.). Dogs give love and attention to their owners or trainers, and this is something that some people with PTSD need to have to stay calm.
