This is such a heartbreaking news story, but it shows just how valuable service dogs are to the families they help.
Josh Kelly suffered from epilepsy, and had a service dog, a pit bull named Cletus, who followed him everywhere. Cletus saved Josh’s life multiple times, alerting friends and family whenever Josh was having a seizure. Unfortunately, Josh was hit hard by his disease and passed away before he was able to graduate, but that doesn’t mean he was forgotten.
Josh’s dad, and Cletus, were on hand to collect Josh’s diploma on the day of graduation. Even though Josh’s dad wasn’t originally sure about having a pit bull as a service dog, he’s come to love Cletus, and all he represents to their family.
