Bravehound Reporting Scotland

Dogs help veterans cope with post-traumatic stress – With thanks to Ian Hamilton & James MacLaughlin.

Dogs have been trained as companions to help veterans cope with the effects of post-traumatic stress. The charity Bravehound has been working on the project since 2016. Mick lost his ankle after detonating an IED while serving in Afghanistan. He says that being teamed up with Sasha has changed his life.

“She’s beautiful. She makes me smile and makes me laugh. Sasha gets me up and gets me out, and makes sunshine on my life.”
