Deniro is a service dog belonging to Peg Ball (https://www.facebook.com/peg.ball1 ). She has a severe physical disability called Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Deniro is a sweet Black Lab mix who has significant medical expenses due to skin allergies and related stress response. He helps her with some practical tasks such as pushing power door buttons to open doors, picking up items, and helping with transactions at cashiers. His allergies make him miserably itchy all the time, and his expensive medications only help somewhat. He really needs allergy testing and allergy serum. He is on a special diet for his allergies. Deniro is also starting a new medication to help with the stress response. Peg is having difficulty covering his medical expenses. She hopes to be able to keep him after he retires in a year or two, but she may have to give him up to a new home if she can't find a way to cover these expenses.
