A group that works to train service dogs is hoping to make life a little easier for an 8-year-old Pottsville boy.
Colin Studlack was diagnosed with Duchennes Muscular Dystrophy when he was just 4-years-old.
On Thursday, Milk-Bone and Sam's Club partnered together to make a service dog donation to Studlack.
Studlack was also officially welcomed to the Canine Assistants family.
Canine Assistants is a non-profit organization that provides service dogs to people with various disabilities.
The organization says it takes up to two years to train each dog and the cost of care can exceed $20,000.
Studlack wasn't alone during the event as his 3rd grade class at Minersville Elementary School was able to watch the presentation via Skype.
