    How dogs help in anxiety and depression?

    I have been a patient to anxiety for about 2 years now. Its been a long journey for me and my family. I got a terrier about 3 months back. And it was like life took a new turn. From a place where I had isolated myself to now being able to meet new people and be much more calmer and relaxed than before, it's been a hell of a ride. In just 3 months. Never knew a dog could be the medicine I needed. So, yes dog does help in treatment of anxiety and depression.

    My mom suffers from depression and anxiety as well. Her little malti/poo is a great comfort for her as well. So glad your new dog has helped you.

    I'm so glad your dog is doing what dogs do. Humans will never be able to come up with a pill to replace pooches.

    Laurel is my first dog in almost 40 years so I totally understand. Just in case your landlord doesn't:

    https://www.animallaw.info/article/f...upport-animals
    Laurel the Wonder Dog born on or about 9/1/18: micro-mutt, li'l yaller dawg, or "All-American".
    Dark Skies O' The Mountains, C.D., Shetland Sheepdog, crossed the Rainbow Bridge on or about 1986ish

    They say that diamonds are a girl's best friend, but diamonds are cold, hard, dead things and doggies have floppy ears and little pink tongues and waggy tails and they actually give a %&^(& when you're crying.
