Man Reunited With Therapy Dog After She Was Lost In Mountains For 28 Days.
Nothing can compare to the connection that some humans have with their pets, especially when the pet has been through thick and thin with them. Some animals have the uncanny ability to understand when their owner doesn't feel good or they're going through a rough patch in their lives. When they do notice, they try to do everything they can to make their owner feel better, even if that means licking their face until they need a shower. This man made a promise to the dog that saved his life, but he never thought that he would have to follow through with it so soon after making it.
As an emergency medical technician (EMT) from Santa Clarita, Justin Scott has an extremely tough job.
On one hand, he has experienced a lot of incredible moments, but on the other, he’s also experienced tremendous pain. Fortunately, unlike many others, he didn’t have to go through the hard times by himself.

Justin’s wife, Sara, is also an EMT, which means she understands what the job entails.
As a couple, they shared the same need to help other people and make a difference in their community. It’s quite obvious why they gravitate towards one another.

Just like any other day, Justin and his crew were called out to an emergency.
After they arrived at the scene, Justin realized that this call was very different from the ones that he had been on before. Justin actually knew the person who was in trouble.
The person who needed medical treatment was one of Justin’s best friends.
Even though they gave everything they had, Justin and his fellow EMTs weren’t able to save the man. Sadly, they just ran out of options. Justin became overwhelmed with guilt, but he never expected it to take over his life the way that it did.

Losing his friend caused Justin to enter into an undeniable state of depression.
He was having a difficult time learning to cope with failing his friend in his time of need. Justin became consumed by the darkness, but, one day, he realized that it was time for a change and he needed some help getting through his depression.
