On his wedding day, Justin had the best buddy on his side as his best man. His dog Gabe.

Justin Lansford lost his left leg in 2012 while serving in Afghanistan. Upon his return home, Warrior Canine Connection decided to pair him with a Golden Retriever named Gabe.

Justin suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and Gabe has been helping him cope. He considers Gabe as an invaluable part of his life.

Last year on Veteran’s Day, Justin recruited the help of Gabe to propose to his girlfriend Carol. Evidently, Gabe, as ever the reliable wingman that he is, did a great job and Justin got a YES! And with everything that the duo had faced together, Justin felt that it’s only right that Gabe be his best man. Like a loyal best friend that he is, Gabe was by Justin’s side on his wedding day!
