Doc, a retired military working dog, is the face of canine post traumatic stress disorder for fundraising and awareness. Doc was injured in Afghanistan while deployed as a MWD, and refused to work following the explosion. He exhibited other signs of trauma as well. Sgt. Chloe Wells, founder of two organizations to support C-PTSD and R-MWDs, gives Doc a "forever home." Canine PTSD awareness of Fayetteville, N.C., seeks to raise awareness, funding for veterinary care, and connect area dog trainers with military, law enforcement, and shelter animals that suffer from traumatic events. The sister organization Retired Military Working Dog Support Inc. raises funds to defray the veterinary costs and travel for retired MWD during and after the adoption process. Wells is assigned to 407th Brigade Support Battalion, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, here. Military Working Dog Adoptions at www.militaryworkingdogadoptions.com is a site dedicated to those who would like to give a "forever home" to a retired military working dog. (U.S. Army Photo by Sgt.
