Bill Campbell is an American veteran who came home with 100% disability due to concussive brain injury. For his service to his country, he received a yellow labrador retriever named Pax who would change his life.
In gratitude for his canine companion, Campbell decided to take a trip to the women’s correctional institution where Pax was trained. This video documents that emotional trip.
The chosen inmates work with the dogs every day, and it takes about a year of training to get the dog ready to be the companion to the selected veteran. Pax was trained by Lori Kellogg.
If you’ve ever wondered if a dog remembers people from his earlier life, you’ll have no doubts after you watch this jubilant reunion between dog and trainer.
