The Team: K9 Karma meets her new handler and companion Brian Kornse.
Dogs2DogTags Host and Hall Of Fame Quarterback Brett Favre has the honor of introducing former US Army 101’st Airborne Veteran Brian Kornse to his new service dog Karma.
Brian Kornse is a retired soldier from the 101st Army Airborne Division, where he and his dog were credited for saving countless lives.
Karma’s trainer, Jessie Richards, talks about the criteria for how service dogs are selected and trained. You won’t believe how much the vet bills, training, food and travel add up!
The best part is watching the new team meet for the first time knowing Brian’s quality of life will grow in immeasurable ways having Karma in his life.
“What will getting this dog mean for you?” asks Brett Favre.
“In the long term it’s going to help me out emotionally, and be able to go back to that feeling that I had when I was a dog handler, and be able to function in society, and just be able to go day-to-day, and feel like life is a lot better than it used to be,” says Brian Kornse.
