LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — September is National Service Dog Month.

To celebrate, a boy from Alaska got his own life-saving canine thanks to a charity here in Las Vegas.

Miracle Flights flew Owen O'Bryan and his parents from Alaska to Kansas for free so the family could pick up their new dog from the Cares Foundation.

Owen suffers from an extremely rare form of epilepsy making it impossible for him to be alone or even sleep in his own bed until now.

Miracle Flights has been giving families and kids free flights to medical care for 35 years.
