Veteran Desperate To Find Missing Service Dog
VINEYARD, Utah — A Coast Guard veteran and his family were desperately searching Friday for a missing service dog, and they were offering a $1,000 reward for the animal’s safe return.
“I put her in the back of the truck and I went around and buckled our son in his car seat and drove home, and when I got home she wasn’t in the truck anymore,” Arballo said.
He said he also filed a report with police.
Arballo was honorably discharged from the Coast Guard in 2013, after he fell on a boat during an ocean rescue, fractured his skull and suffered a traumatic brain injury.
Murphy has been with Arballo and his family for nearly four years, and the veteran said the dog has acted as his “lifeline.”
“She can pick up on my issues that I’m having before I even notice,” Arballo said.
He said if someone took his dog in, he hoped that person would return her, and he is offering a $1,000 reward for Murphy’s return.
“Please… I need Murphy back,” Arballo said. “She is more than just a dog — much, much more than just that.”
