Caleb Homer of Mulberry is a Navy veteran who gets help from Chloe, a 10-year-old Australian Cattle Dog. Chloe is trained to detect changes in Homer’s blood chemistry, aid in mobility, and apply deep pressure therapy when needed.

With her training, Chloe has helped Homer, who is diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and a traumatic brain injury.

Homer, 38, got into trouble when he and Chloe went out to restaurants. The police called him in because business owners didn’t want a dog in their establishments. However, service dogs are permitted in such locations under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
