When he’s not selling Street Roots, Stephen can sometimes be glimpsed slaloming his longboard down the street at high speed like a water skier. His service dog, Dallas, plays the speedboat.
Dallas is a mix of pit bull, German shepherd and Labrador retriever. She’s compact and solidly built, like a pit bull.
“She’s like an anchor with legs,” Stephen said. “I just keep the leash taut and as long as the road is level or downhill, on a cool, dry day she’ll tow me for up to 25 miles.”
But her disposition is that of a Lab – everybody’s best friend.
