Military Veteran Unable To Function Since Service Dog Ran Away, Pleads For Help

 "My life is a nightmare. I can't sleep. I can't function." Spread the word!

Roi Biton has been in mourning for six months. Although his dog is not dead, he is now in the most terrifying situation of his life.

Beaton, a 39-year-old Israeli veteran, played with his dog in a clearing in Jones Malzberg, Texas, near U.S. Highway 281. Golani, his dog, spotted a little animal and dashed to pursue it. That was his last encounter with the dog, and his life has never been the same since.

Biton described his existence as a "horror." “I'm having trouble sleeping. I'm unable to function. I get leads, but they generally take me to another dog that isn't Golani.” Golani is not only the man's adoring companion, but he is also a qualified emotional support dog. Golani has been in his father's life since he was eight weeks old. Now that the dog is five years old, Roi is distraught, and he hopes that someone has seen his lost pup.

So far, he has hired a private investigator and asked to see surveillance footage in the area where the dog went missing. Unfortunately, the cameras were not operational on that day. He contacted a few television and radio stations in the hopes that they would spread the information as well. Biton said, "Golani belongs with me, and I belong with him." “We share a kinship that Golani will never have with anybody else... My entire family is in Israel, so I'm very much on my own here. Golani was a gift to help me deal with my PTSD and loneliness. We have made incredible connections. He means a lot to me.”

Golani was not wearing a collar at the time of his disappearance, but he is microchipped. He is a white dog with a black mark on his nose and a half black on his left ear. He was about 3-1/2 feet tall and 90 pounds when he disappeared. Anyone with information should contact 210-383-2404 by phone or text. Briton said that all tips will be kept confidential and that he will not ask any questions.
