Local Iraq War veteran discovers therapy dog is sick, asks for help

DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A local Iraq War veteran is asking for help -- not for himself, but for his best friend, who needs potential life-saving surgery.

Katniss gives Craig Robinson comfort when no one else can.

Robinson spent eight years overseas serving in Afghanistan and Iraq. He was a truck driver, and with that came the every day dangers of IEDs. He saw and feared them.

Now he has a different fear. Katniss is sick.

"Roughly a week ago I noticed her bumping into things," he said.

A vet diagnosed the dog with a neurological problem.

Here is a link to the GoFundMe.
