Charity flies boy 5,000 miles to bring home life-saving service dog
September is National Service Dog Month
To celebrate September as National Service Dog Month, a boy from Alaska got his own life-saving canine - thanks to an organization called Miracle Flights.
Miracle Flights, a national charity, flew Owen O’Bryan and his parents from Alaska to Kansas for free - that’s nearly 5,000 miles round-trip. The reason? To pick up a new furry family member from “The Cares Foundation.”
After a three-year wait, the seizure-alert dog, is now Owen’s constant companion. The seven-year-old suffers from an extremely rare form of epilepsy making it impossible for him to be alone or even sleep in his own bed - until now.
