This Lonely 92-Year-Old Veteran Refused To Leave Her Home Until She Met This Very Special Dog

92-year-old veteran Annabelle Weiss had spent years indoors until she met golden Labrador Joe, who totally changed her life.

When she was 20, Annabelle enlisted in the US Marines. She served there for two years as a driver and plane engine inspector.

She was discharged from the military in 1946 and started working as a nurse.

Annabelle left nursing when she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Although she beat the disease, her quality of life suffered and she found herself spending more and more time at home.

Until, in 2013, she was given a special service dog, Joe, who was trained to accompany the 92-year-old, open and close doors for her, and pick up things she drops.

“He’s not my dog, he’s the son I never had,” says Annabelle, “He’ll follow me to the end of the earth.”

“He changed my life, he really did. Without him, I would be at the house a lot. Now, people call me and I’m never home!” she laughs.

There’s nothing holding this incredible duo back now.
