The Greatest Bond A touching and inspirational one-hour documentary special, shot in observational style, The Greatest Bond is an in-depth chronicle about the high cost of war on the brave heroes and heroines who fight for our freedom.
Over the course of one hour we follow a group of disabled US veterans who are about to be given a service dog. We see their transformation as the dog expands the veteran's world and heals their hearts. Not only do these dogs help the veterans on a very practical level, they provide constant emotional support, protection and relief from the terrors of their combat-related PTSD. Peppered among the vulnerable and broken veteran stories, we will also experience the lighthearted joy of the puppies, the redirected lives of the female inmates and the good-natured humor of the Patriot Paws trainers.
The Greatest Bond centers around a service dog organization called Patriot Paws based in Dallas, Texas. Many of these traumatized men and women come to Patriot Paws in their darkest hours, as a last resort. While the service dogs help on a fundamentally practical level, the audience will be left with the knowledge that ultimately these dogs save lives.
