Can you please tell me why it is so difficult to obtain papers for a support dog? My friend, age 62, who is on disability for arthritis of the spine and PTSD, was once a surgeon's assistant. She had two boys who became Green Berets and fought eight years in Iraq. They're in Texas and California now. She has two grandchildren she has never met. Her family (two 82-year-old parents) will not help her. She's on apartment waiting lists. None accept a small Yorkie Terrier. That's her family now, a small dog which most apartments will not accept unless the person has support dog papers. When she asked the doctor for help, the doctor made her undergo the doctor's idea of therapy - psychiatric medicine and a 20-year-old therapist. No papers were ever provided.
