Vet Injured in War, Saved by Napal

After years spent struggling with depression and denial, paralyzed special ops vet Jason Morgan says his life was changed immeasurably with the addition of a remarkable family member – a black lab named Napal.

Gravely injured during a special-ops drug raid in South America, Jason Morgan spent six weeks in a coma before awakening to learn that he would never walk again. After years spent struggling with depression and denial, his life was changed immeasurably with the addition of a remarkable family member – a black lab named Napal.

Now Morgan and Napal face life’s challenges together, and Morgan says Napal’s presence has completely changed his outlook on life. “From an emotional standpoint, he’s changed my whole life in an amazing way,” he said.

    1. I totally agree with your pinch collar comment. These collars are banned in some parts of the UK and I think a lot of this comes down to edcuation, we have to make folk more aware of these issues and what they do to our dogs.

  2. Is everyone Familiar with the org. SAVE A VET what a great cause. They save service dog (police, military dogs). Save a vet employs disabled vets. To care for these animals..

  3. Simply AMAZING~~ my parents are blind and my dad has had a Seeing Eye Dog ever since I was little and it NEVER seizes to amaze me what these animals are capable of. The independence they provide people with disabilities is wonderful, and I thank God for them!!

  4. I WOULD LIKE TO GET A LITTLE DOG I CAN CUTTLE WITH ! SENCE PRITTYGIRL PASS IV MORE LONLY THEN I ALL READY AM ! BUT MY HUSBAND WON’T LET ME HAVE ONE !

  5. @Tracy, I hope that your husband relents and a little dog finds its way into your arms as I’m quite sure that it would also find a way into your husband’s arms. Animals help humans heal.

  6. As a wife of a veteran of war, thank you for posting this. Thank you to all the men and women out there who serve our country. Thank you to all these trainers that work with this beautiful dogs to help others in need.

  7. I am watching the episode on Animal Planet for the first time. These dogs are brilliant however I am appalled at the use of pinch/prong collars. This is not acceptable and hope this practice has changed since the series of ‘Extraordinary Dogs’ was first released.
