A survivor of the Humboldt Broncos bus crash will receive a special delivery later this week -- a one-year-old service dog named Chase.

The pup is being trained by MSAR Elite Service Dogs, to act as a service dog for Graysen Cameron, one of 13 survivors of the tragic collision last April.

George Leonard, a dog trainer with MSAR, said Chase was chosen because of his demeanor, and the dog will help aid Cameron's recovery.
