Featured Service Dog

“OP”

3-parts standard poodle, 1-part Labrador retriever with a specialization in seizure alerts

OP hails from Pennsylvania, and is a 3-parts standard poodle, 1-part Labrador retriever with a specialization in seizure alerts. You may ask “What does OP stand for…..why not Opie?” Well, it goes back to OP’s mother, and her long string of puppies that were birthed eight years ago. After naming seven pups, the attending owner had run through her list of names. The last puppy coming out had to manage the burden of this lapse in creativity, and was named OP as a short form of “Other Puppy.”

Well it turns out this “Other Puppy” was destined to become an incredible service dog, as was his brother, Justin. With the skilled training from Amazing Tails in Pennsylvania, these two dogs were soon headed to Florida to support their new owners. Sadly, Justin passed away a few years back due to bone cancer. However, his brother OP has been a working companion to Ian Shulman, as he lives with intractable seizures.

In his daily life, OP gets to gently nuzzle Ian under his armpit to signal the onset of seizures. He is also a constant support as Ian copes with periods of double vision and the threat of collapse. For his ongoing dedication to supporting and loving Ian, our Featured Service Dog is OP.
