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.

For many people a dog is just a pet, but for dozens of veterans who have been helped through a made-in-Manitoba program, their pups become guardian angels.
Courageous Companions is a project that provides specially trained service dogs to veterans who are struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other disabilities.
