LAS VEGAS (FOX5) – A veteran’s dying wish is to reunite with 2-year-old service dog, Murphy. Murphy is a Belgian Malinois.
He disappeared Dec. 6 after his owner, 72-year-old Morris Collins, suffered a medical episode.
"I passed out on the floor and had bleeding from my mouth,” said Morris. “When they took me in the ambulance to the hospital on the 6 of December, Murphy chased after the ambulance. That’s how he got lost.”
Morris was diagnosed with esophageal cancer and given six months to live. He was devastated to learn Murphy was missing after narrowly dying himself.
Murphy’s home is in Centennial Hills near Ft. Apache Road and Gilcrease Avenue. He was spotted the day after the incident at Oso Blanca Road and Durango Drive near PT’s Pub.
