Moving on with Turner's help

Posted: Updated:

Chardon, Ohio school shooting survivor Nick Walczak has a new friend that will never leave his side.

"I'm not lonely anymore. He's constantly with me," Nick says.

He's talking about Turner, his new service dog who was trained by prison inmates at the North Central Correctional Complex in Marion, Ohio.

Nick first met Turner at the prison and finally got him permanently about a month ago.

Turner is a Wags 4 Kids dog.

The group is a nonprofit organization that trains service dogs for kids with disabilities.

Turner is basically Nick's assistant.

He can fetch shoes and pick up clothing as well as turn lights on and off.

He was extremely valuable when Nick was home alone and dropped his phone under the wheelchair ramp.
