One disabled veteran by the name of Bill Campbell acquired a service dog, Pax, after he was deemed 100% disabled due to concussive brain injury and PTSD. Pax was a yellow labrador, trained specifically to help Bill tend to his everyday needs. He was trained at a women's correctional facility and Bill takes it upon himself to reunite his service dog with those who trained him.\r\n\r\nCampbell also struggles with PTSD and anxiety, as is the issue with most veterans after they leave the military. Pax was able to help restore a self of freedom and identity with Campbell again. So, he takes Pax back to Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for an emotional reunion.\r\nDisabled veteran Bill Campbell with Laurie and Pax\r\n\r\n\r\nWhen Pax sees his old trainer, Laurie Kellogg, at the correctional facility, he bolts directly to her. He remembers exactly where he is and who Laurie is. Pax was super excited to see his original trainer again and she welcomes Pax in for a hug with open arms! It was an electrified reunion between the two.\r\n\r\nAs seen in the photo, Campbell sits down with the women in the facility to talk about Pax and his impact. Laurie knows firsthand what Pax can do for someone who is struggling. She says, \u201cI too had P.T.S.D.,\u201d she said. \u201cAfter years of domestic violence. I too had flashbacks. Pax knew.\u201d\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\u201cI knew he would make someone feel safe. He made me feel a sense of freedom in a place I was supposed to feel anything but," Laurie explains. She did not want to give him up, but she knew that Pax had a special gift to give to someone else in need.\r\n\r\nLaurie is part of a 27-women group who train dogs for the Puppies Behind Bars program. When Pax originally left Laurie to go to Campbell, she would keep his old water dish just to preserve the memory of the service dog.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nLaurie continues, \u201cI never thought I\u2019d see him again. If they opened the doors and let me out of prison, I wouldn\u2019t feel this good.\u201d\r\n\r\nThose are some bold words towards our good friend Pax here! What a beautiful story.
