ABC News reports that Gabe lost his leg following an IED explosion in Afghanistan in 2012. They were paired through a program called, “The Warrior Canine Connection.”

Service Dog, Gabe has been there for most of his recovery helping Justin with everyday tasks, transition out of using a wheelchair, and just getting back to every day civilian life.

Here’s a nice video from last year showing how Gabe got his training and has actually touched the life of another brave hero, as well.
