Meet Miley McCrary and her trained and licensed Service Dog, Leaha (a granddaughter to 2J 2K Border Collies foundation female, Swift). Miley is in remission from Ewings Sarcoma, a rare childhood cancer. Cancer left part of her arm and hand ravaged and prone to infection. Being an active child, she bumps her arm a lot, which, in her case, can require hospitalization and lead to infections because it creates a buildup of fluid.

Leaha protects Miley’s arm and hand in crowds by creating a barrier (her Mom says large women’s purses are the worst!). She helps break Miley’s falls, opens doors, and assists Miley in undressing. Miley will always need assistance in these areas.

When Leaha was a puppy Kimberley Knight, of the Date Creek Ranch near Wickenburg, AZ, donated her to Sam’s Wish, and Sam’s Wish gifted her to Miley. 

Pioneered and directed by Mary Whipple, a fellow breeder before she retired, Sam’s Wish helped individuals in need of a service dog.

Sam’s Wish launched because of the wish of another little girl, Samantha. Samantha had experienced an extremely traumatic event in her young life and struggled in many ways- meeting new people, PTSD, anxiety, etc. When Sam met Jefe (a founding sire and Border Collie owned by Mary Whipple), he helped her connect on an emotional level, which promoted steps in healing.

A young man, who has PTSD & now attending ASU, and two young women who have anxiety and depression, have also been gifted Border Collies by Sam’s Wish. Jefe alerted Mary’s husband Rex when he had diabetic lows. Jefe also sired puppies who went on to be medical alert dogs.

We are proud to have assisted by breeding dogs who produce service and emotional support animals. We are also thankful to have been able to donate monetarily from the purchase price of our Border Collie’s to assist this excellent program.

Follow us this coming year; we have exciting plans in the works for service animals.

“Thank you for such a wonderful puppy. She has already fit in so well. She is calm and confident and on our heels. Yesterday I was sitting in the yard with her and a plane went overhead and she looked up and tracked it – she is so smart! Even after working with dogs all these years, it still amazes me that what a dog is bred for can be so instilled in them. Thank you so much, Kara. Your dogs are amazing. Hope all is well.”
