Shepherd Center’s therapy dogs are more than canine companions

Christian Maynard was just being a kid, a normal teenager having a good time, when it happened. In a flash. So fast he didn’t know what hit him.

He was riding a motorcycle, towing a dune buggy loaded with friends, when he hit some gravel and flipped. The dune buggy ran right over him, breaking vertebrae in his neck and back.

He couldn’t move. Friends called for help. Ten days later he was at the Shepherd Center, a rehabilitation hospital in Atlanta.
