He was gonna be he was a kill shelter and you saved him. Do you know?' And he said, 'Ah, he saved me. He saved me.' Patterson: It is the most gratifying feeling I've ever felt life. The fact that I've saved two lives at once is even more gratifying. Cox: For those that would be interested supporting this program, I mean, it doesn't matter if it's a little bit, if it's a lot. It means a lot to us as the veterans, as the wounded. It means the world to us. McCullah: The people who donated that dog and that money to take care of and train that dog, their ministry is expanded, you know. And they 't even know it.
