Mario the Hearing Dog

Mario was partnered with Gerria, a former firefighter and paramedic, in September, 2010, and now lives with her in Kentucky. Gerria reports that Mario has adjusted well to his new life, and is a blessing.

She writes, "Mario is my hearing partner and has become very special to me... Due to my past career as a firefighter and paramedic, I have significant hearing loss. The hearing loss has affected me in ways you cannot even imagine. I have 5 grandchildren and a school full of EMT, paramedic, and other medical related students who need my attention, sometimes very quickly. Mario is quick to tap me very softly on my leg to let me know someone is calling my name, which is very important in my business. Mario also retrieves items I drop because I cannot hear it when the item falls to the ground. This can mean losing my car keys, medical equipment, money, or important paperwork, just to mention a few items. Mario has quickly adjusted to Asbury College, our students at Emergency Medical Training Professionals LLC, grandchildren, and life on the run in Kentucky!"

Way to go, Mario!
