August 06, 2015

Ricochet is one very special dog. At one time her owner, Judy Fridono from Escondido, CA, had hopes that Ricochet would one day be a service dog. When that didn’t pan out, Fridono found a way to get her to help others through surfing. Ricochet who has always loved swimming is now using her skills to help people with mental and physical disabilities. 

This isn’t the first time Ricochet has been in the news. Two years ago this golden retriever was featured on ESPN for her efforts to help people with special needs. You can read more about Ricoccet via Daily Mail here.
