Ryan was medically retired from the Coast Guard. His medical issues included anxiety and severe agoraphobia. He still has difficulty leaving the house and this not only affected him but also his wife and daughter. From the first day he was placed with Jeano he was able to do things that he had not done in years. He says it was a miracle. He says Jeano is his Battle Buddy and he now knows that he will always have a partner to help him through. Ryan says he is feeling a hope and excitement for the future that he has not had in 11 years.
Jeano was one of two dogs that were owner surrenders from their outdoor life of being in a 4 x 4 pen. He graduated from Camp K9 and was then placed into service with Ryan.
