Gunner the service dog

One the night of January 12th 2018 Gunner was let out on his lead to use the restroom. His owner walked away from the door for 5 minutes to use the restroom himself. After returning he found that Gunner was no longer on his lead. It was in the middle of a snow storm so we immediately went on the search for him! Looking at where his lead ended there were no dog prints leading away, only human prints. We put several flyers around town and even contacted the news. After 2 weeks and multiple calls and searching we were notified that the search for Gunner was over. He had been found deceased  less than 2 blocks from Bryan's home. Gunner was not only a pet he was also Bryan's service companio . Bryan is a veteran and was disabled during his time in the military. He has severe seizures and Gunner was his service animal and would warn us several minutes before an attack. We are setting up this website to help the cost of obtaining another service animal, fees for training, and vet fees. We appreciate everyone's help and words of sympathy.
