SPRING TWP., Pa. -

Daniel Sheldon is a veteran who was anxiously awaiting a new member of his family on Saturday.

"A lot of excitement, a lot of anticipation," Sheldon said. "I can barely stand still."

As a truck driver, he said he wanted a dog to be a furry companion on the road. He got in touch with the group A Hero's Hero to make it happen.

A Hero's Hero works to pair dogs with veterans, and it takes care of a lot of the upfront costs through sponsorships.

"We take care of all of the medical costs of the dog. We also provide training," said Nikki Mengel, co-founder of A Hero's Hero.

When Sheldon met his new dog, Camo, for the first time on Saturday, it was instant joy.

Sheldon said he is grateful for the group for working to make the connection happen.
