After waiting almost a year, Marine Veteran Shawn Dalton got his service dog. The nonprofit American Warrior Initiative, funded by Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation, was able to cut his wait short. Together with Custom Canines Service Dog Academy, the nonprofits surprised Dalton by gifting him Tango the Golden-Doodle.
Dalton has been training 2-year-old Tango with the nonprofit for a few weeks. But he's been on the waiting list for nearly a year. Yet, Dalton says the wait hadn't discouraged him because "the dogs are well worth it."
