TULSA, Okla. — An unexpected find led to a heart-warming reunion between two Marine veterans.

Oklahoma Pet Collective Society learned about a dog that was involved in a high-speed chase that ended in an accident on Sunday night. The dog was believed to have died in the crash.

When Oklahoma Pet Collective Society went to remove the dog from the car, they found another dog alive and curled up in the front seat.

They took that dog to the vet to be checked out for injuries. The vet confirmed the healthy dog had no injuries. They determined the dog wasn't originally in the car during the accident.

Oklahoma Pet Collective Society reached out to a local rescuer and a Tulsa police officer to try and locate the owner of the dog. They found out the dog had a microchip and contacted.

When dog and owner reunited, Jim shared their incredible story. The dog, Rogue, served for tours in the U.S. Marine Corps. Jim, the owner, served 3 tours. Rogue is now 10 and retired from military service. Jim's had him since Rogue was about 7 months old. Rogue is now his service dog.

Oklahoma Pet Collective Society writes in their Facebook post that they are "heartbroken" for the dog who passed during the accident but are thankful to reunite Rogue with Jim.
