Lance, of Carlsbad, was in his early twenties when a diving accident left him paralyzed. He went from being an active and athletic Marine Corps Reservist and walk-on football player at Arkansas State University to being trapped in bed. Lance took a major stride forward in his emotional recovery from this devastating accident when he was matched with a Canine Companions service dog. "My service dog changed my life," Lance explains. "She gave me responsibility, independence and the confidence to go out there and try things I didnít think I could do." Today, Lance is partnered with his second service dog, Auggie. In addition to helping with practical tasks, Auggie makes life a lot more fun!
