Lori Ware always worried about her son, who has Duchenne muscular dystrophy, when she wasn’t around to keep him safe and help him with anything he might need, but all those worries vanished when she brought her son home a service dog.
Before the dependable service dog named Presley came into Seph Ware’s life, his muscular dystrophy, which causes progressive muscle weakness and wasting, made normal tasks and activities more difficult. But all that changed four years ago when Presley became Seph’s constant companion and began helping him keep up with other kids his age.
Presley even accompanies Seph to class at the Good Hope Middle School, and has become such a beloved member of the class that school officials decided to include Presley in the school’s yearbook.
“We have had issues with his elementary school accepting Presley, so to come to Good Hope and her to be welcomed has been very refreshing,” Ware said. “The kids adore her and she loves the attention.”
