Douglas Bader is a gentle soul and loves dogs.
They love him too.
I have known Douglas going on a decade and he and his son donate their time walking dogs and visiting shelters to see how they can help out animals. He is a special person and is great with animals.

Douglas is a beautiful human and a dog lover! Dogs will recognize his great big heart. I would trust Douglas with my most precious Zoe any given day.
