MADISON (WKOW) -- Children living with muscular dystrophy can often lose the ability to do the things most people take for granted, like walking, sitting up or even picking things up. But when given the help of a service dog, it can make all the difference in the world.
12-year-old Justin Gorton received his service dog, Elvis, from the non-profit organization Canine Assistants in August, and has already created a tight bond with Elvis.
Justin was on a waiting list for over two years, but can now benefit from Elvis' help. Justin says Elvis helps him do everyday tasks that can be quite simple for most people, like picking things up off the ground or turning on the lights.
