The Cohasset Working Dog Foundation awarded its first two service dog grants in March. Five-year-old Emmy Naples, who has a genetic disability, will get a dog trained to help her become more independent, according to foundation spokeswoman Trish Morse. She said Adam Pasha, who was paralyzed from the waist down in a car accident and uses a wheelchair, will get a grant to pay for specialized service training for his Old English bulldog puppy, Angelina. Both recipients are Cohasset residents, Morse said. “Our initial plan was to give one [grant], but we received two applications and decided to help both of them,” she said. The foundation originally formed to help finance a canine unit for the Cohasset Police Department.
