Thank You For Your Support – Meet London – Kye’s Service Dog
Dravet Syndrome has caused Kye to have more than 16 status seizures, requiring emergency medical intervention and ambulance / medevac trips to the hospital, as well as hundreds of daily small seizures. Fortunately, Kye has found good control with medication! Along with seizures, Dravet Syndrome has also caused speech, mobility, and developmental delays.
Kyelynn was accepted by 4 Paws for Ability to receive a seizure alert and multipurpose service dog. With your help we were able to bring this highly skilled service dog home for Kyelynn. Together we raised nearly $17,000 for 4 Paws for Ability to support their mission!
What a seizure alert & multipurpose Service Dog will do for Kyelynn:
Tracking – If Kye ever wandered or ran away, her dog would be able to track her scent and find her quickly.
Seizure alert – the dog is trained to sense and respond to seizures.
Mobility- the dog has a harness to help steady Kye while walking on uneven ground.
Behavior disruption – The dog is trained to nuzzle, lick, etc. to help calm Kye or stop an unwanted behavior such as temper tantrums.
Companionship/Socialization – It is difficult for a child with special needs to feel comfortable in our social world. This dog will be Kye’s best friend and hopefully encourage her to make new relationships easily.
Sense of security and safety for Kye – The dog can go to the hospital with her, to therapy and even to school! This will help her in transitions and in stressful situations.
