Military service dog reunited with owner in New Port Richey

NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. (WFLA) — A previously missing service dog was reunited with his owner, a U.S. military veteran on Thursday.

“Aquino” is a cream-colored labradoodle and was missing in New Port Richey.

A family found him digging in their backyard on Easthaven Court and called Pasco County Animal Services.

Two Animal Control officers immediately responded, ID’d the dog and were able to reunite Aquino with his owner at the scene.

Aquino was a little disoriented and needed a bath, but other than that, Animal Services said he is in good shape and very happy to see his owner.
