“I feel complete. I feel like a person again.”

Joshua struggles returning to civilian life after serving in the military in Aghanistan, but his two dogs, who he had to be separated from after a forced move to California, make him feel whole again now that they’re reunited.

Joshua says he feels very out of place and isolated after all he’s been through, but there are two constants in his life that keep him going—his two dogs, Panda and Mama. They show him loyalty and support during the tough transition.

When he couldn’t bring Mama and Panda with him to California, he had to leave them behind in Louisiana. That’s where Tia and Mariah from Pitbulls and Parolees stepped in. They drove the dogs to Joshua, where they reunited in Los Angeles.

It’s immediately clear his dogs missed him as much as he missed them.

Again, animals prove they really can be man’s best friend.
