GJ and Syndi

GJ and Syndi, who live in Portland, OR, were partnered in 2009.  GJ has chronic osteoarthritis and a congenital birth defect that left her with two foreshortened arms.  As a result, she needed a service dog to retrieve, open doors, carry items in a backpack and alert someone for help.  Syndi, a Golden Retriever, also provides loving companionship.  GJ likes to take short trips with her husband, and Syndi is always ready to go along, especially to the beach.  Personal independence is very important to GJ, and her bond with Syndi helps ensure and support that need.
