“Teddie was matched with Krystal in the summer of 2013 and since being partnered these two have taken on life at full speed! Krystal shared, “With Teddie’s help over the last three years, I was able to graduate with three associate degrees from Cecil College. Teddie has allowed me to travel on my own on long car trips, attend regular outings with friends and family, volunteer at Canine Partners for Life, and even work a part-time job. My outlook on life has taken a complete 180 and I cannot imagine it without her.” ~Canine Partners for Life
