If you have a beloved pet home, grab your tissues and hold on. This is going to be quite emotional. Dogs are extremely special creatures.

When the men and women of our armed forces come home from battle, some have PTSD or post-traumatic stress disorder. In order to cope with the trauma that they have suffered, many of them get service dogs. Service dogs can save the lives of the humans they love, but sometimes, they're the ones needing the saving.
