A service dog has now been reunited with his owner thanks to social media.

Once we received word that the dog, named Angel, became separated from its owner and wound up overnight at the Rescue the Animals facility in Abilene, we posted the information on Facebook.

Within hours of the post, the owner's sister recognized Angel.

The owner, who needs the dog because of his seizures, was reunited with Angel Friday afternoon.

The owner says he is happy to be re-united with Angel and, thankfully, did not suffer any medical issues in the dog's absence.
