quincyArmy veteran Adam Morton thought he’d lost his service dog Quincy for good when Quincy went missing during Morton’s move from Des Moines, Iowa to Saginaw Townhip, Michigan. A microchip and some strangers helped reunite Quincy and Morton.

Morton shares a strong bond with Quincy. Morton suffers from PTSD and Quincy has helped him deal with the disorder. He was devastated when Quincy went missing while moving.

Quincy was still back in Iowa and was adopted by a family. Luckily that family realized that Quincy had a mircrochip and were able to track down Morton who is very thankful for their effort.

“Thank you for taking him and taking care of him,” said Morton. “It’s a huge relief on me that I know he was safe.”

Operation First Response and the Patriot Guard riders will help bring Quincy from Iowa to Morton in Michigan. The two are expected to be reunited on Tuesday.
