Many of these dogs come from abusive situations and are unadoptable due to their extreme fear of humans and resulting behavior problems. Through patience and lots of love, most of the dogs involved in this program improve significantly and can eventually be adopted to a caring home.
Gabe the Golden Retriever was introduced to Justin Lansford by the Warrior Canine Connection after an injury that resulted in the loss of his leg while stationed in Afghanistan.
Since then, the two have been inseparable. As Justin's new wife Carol told The Dodo, "They are pretty much joined at the hip."
When it was time to decide who would stand by Justin's side as Best Man in their wedding ceremony Gabe was the clear winner.
