OLYMPIA — It was a happy Independence Day for a disabled veteran who got his service dog back!
Q13 FOX News first told you Robert Mitchell’s story on Thursday. Mitchell said his service dog in-training was stolen from his backyard — taking his beloved pet and his sense of security.
But on the 4th of July, Max was returned to the veteran by a woman who lives just three miles away.
She saw the story on the news and sent him a message saying she had his dog.
Now that Max is back with Mitchell, he can carry on with his important role.
Mitchell served 20 years in the Army and suffers from PTSD and life-threatening seizures. Max is training to alert him before he has a medical emergency.
