Sean served his community for years as a police captain. While on duty, Sean received a call to respond to a local convenience store. There, he fought with a robbery suspect and was severely injured. Many surgeries and months of rehabilitation were necessary to help repair the damage from Sean’s broken back, traumatic brain injury, and permanent memory loss.
Sean was paired with his medical Service Dog Thor in September of 2019. When asked about his service dog, Sean said: “I don’t know what I’d do without Thor. He allows me to be in the house by myself and has restored my independence. Thor assists me with my mobility issues and literally helps me up should I fall. He’s got my back and has allowed me to do things I never thought I’d be able to do again”.
