Daniel wagged his tail and quacked quietly to help keep his human calm.
Fitzgerald suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder from a bad accident three years ago. She was driving a horse and carriage around Milwaukee when she was hit by a driver who was texting. Fitzgerald was thrown from the carriage and didn’t walk again or regain use of her arm for months.
That’s when Daniel came into her life when her doctor prescribed him as her therapy animal to help calm her, especially when he senses a panic attack coming on.
