Man With PTSD Threatened With Jail For Posting Flyers About Missing Service Dog
July 26, 2013
A Marysville, Washington man who suffers from post traumatic stress disorder due to a violent police encounter was threatened with fines and jail time this week after posting flyers about his missing service dog.
Shawn Slater, 34, says his dog Nanna, a 3-year-old certified medical alert and therapy Rottweiler, helped him manage his anxiety and seizures so well that he was able to get off his prescription medication over two years ago. After being frightened by Fourth of July fireworks, Nanna ran through a hole in the fence, losing her tags in the process.
