Former Marine Dan Lasko lost his leg in an ambush during his 2004 deployment to Afghanistan and returned to the United States with a severe case of PTSD.
He not only had to struggle adjusting to his new physical disability, but also suffered extreme anxiety and traumatic flashbacks.
Lasko needed something or someone to help him cope with his new life, so he reached out to VetDogs, an organization that matches wounded veterans with service dogs.
The organization paired him with a lab named Wally and both of their lives changed forever. They started doing everything together, including grocery shopping and train for triathlons.
Lasko recently welcomed in another furry member to the family, a rescue dog named Maggie. Lasko was happy to save Maggie, just like Wally saved him.
