A Michigan veteran and his best friend are re-united after weeks apart.

A few weeks ago Adam Morton was moving back to his home state of Michigan from Iowa when his dog Quincy ran away.

Quincy is more than just a pet. He's a trained service dog who helps Morton deal with his post-traumatic stress.

Last week a Clive animal control officer found Quincy and turned him over to AHeinz 57 Pet Rescue who contacted Adam.

On Tuesday, two Patriot Guard Riders arrived in Saginaw, MI and re-united Morton and Quincy.

Morton says he eternally grateful to the men who brought back his friend, and lifeline.

“He's trained to wake me up if I’m having nightmares and stuff like that,” Morton said.

On the effort to get them reunited Morton remarked, “You don’t hear about the other stuff they do. For veterans to drive 615 miles… is pretty awesome, man.”

    I would love to know more about this story. My father-in-law served in Vietnam, he received a purple heart for his service. He also suffers PTSD. Who trained this dog? What kind of dog is he?
