A disabled Florida veteran was brought to tears Tuesday when he was reunited with his service dog after she went missing in a car wreck.
"I'm a simple person. I lead a simple life. To lose something as important as this dog really, really hurt me," said Luke Macner.
The accident happened Thursday night, just eight hours after Macner adopted the Rottweiler-German Shepherd Mix through the Humane Society of Tampa Bay's Pets for Patriots program.
