Pictured, Jessica Kensky and her husband, Patrick Downes — who each lost a leg — with her new service dog. Suzanne Kreiter/Globe Staff Kensky got Rescue through the Pawsitively Strong fund, which was created by NEADS/Dogs for Deaf and Disabled Americans to provide assistance animals free to bombing victims. Suzanne Kreiter/Globe Staff “We were devastated by what happened at the Boston Marathon and our immediate thought was, what can we do to help?” said Lisa Brown, NEADS manager of communications. Suzanne Kreiter/Globe Staff The group’s service dogs are primarily Labrador and golden retrievers, while its hearing dogs are often smaller, mixed breeds. Suzanne Kreiter/Globe Staff "I have someone to think about instead of just dwelling on myself. We’ve only had him a week and it’s like he’s always been with us," said Kensky.
