War Veteran Paired With Unlikely Service Dog

Dog

DogA service dog and its owner must be compatible in order to have a functioning relationship. Terrance McGlade, a soldier, suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and was looking for a service pet, reports Angela Lutz of the Huffington Post.

Major is his service pet. The rescue dog came with a number of behavioral issues due to a rough past. Nevertheless, the bond was forged and Terrance worked closely with the canine to ensure that it was equipped with essential service skills.

Both parties trained at Stiggy’s Dogs, an organization that deals with dogs and war veterans. Together, Major and Terrance changed each other’s lives.
