Chad Flemming is a retired VET who completed two tours of Iraq. Unfortunately while he was their, like so many other veterans, he paid a heavy price.
On his return, as well as his injured leg, he was plagued with anxiety and PTSD.
Sometimes the stress becomes to much for veterans like Chad but his relief came in an unlikely form.
Mikko had been neglected and led a sad life until Chad befriended the shy pitbull cross.
After a couple of days the pair were like two peas in a pod and were helping each other in ways they could never have imagined.
Its often said that a pet dog can cure stress and anxiety and in this case they both cured each other.
