BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - A disabled veteran's service dog missing for nearly a week was found Tuesday morning safe and sound.

Forrest Ward called FOX6 News Tuesday morning saying the dog, a yellow lab named Emma, had been discovered in the Gardendale area.  He said he was on his way to pick up the dog.

Emma disappeared last Wednesday after the sound of a gunshot scared her away while she and Ward were walking.

Ward is paralyzed from the chest down and confined to a wheelchair. Ward says Emma helps him by pushing him in his chair, answering the phone and picking up objects off the floor.
