Couple desperately searching for missing service dog

A couple in Orlando is desperately looking for their service dog that they believe may have been stolen.

Jackie Brazell says she has Post Traumatic Stress Disorder after witnessing a shooting and her dog, Desmond, is trained to help with her severe anxiety.  

On January 31st, her husband took the dog with him to work on their boat trailer in Belle Isle.  Desmond was playing with two other dogs when they all ran away.  The other dogs came back, but the service dog did not.  

"Please, please, please bring my dog back.  You don't understand what this dog means to me, what he does for me," Brazell said while fighting tears.  "Sometimes in public, I hear a noise..my anxiety can go through the roof.  It triggers anxiety and he senses it and comforts me."

Brazell says for now she spends every day avoiding a situation that could trigger her PTSD.

Brazell had someone bring in a blood hound to try and track him down, but Desmond's scent disappeared in the middle of the road. 

The couple is currently offering a $2500 reward on Craigslist for anyone that can find their missing service dog.
