JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- He served our country and helped fight for freedom, and that's why a small non-profit based in New York that helps pair veterans suffering from PTSD with therapy dogs said it is offering a big reward to help find a missing Jacksonville veteran's dog.

We first told you about Sgt. Kenneth Chambers desperate search to find his dog last Fall, and despite nearly 10 months having passed since she vanished the effort to find her is gaining steam.

"That's my little girl and she belongs with me. Safe and sound at my side. Anything less I will not settle for that," said Chambers.

Not a day goes by that Sgt. Kenneth Chambers doesn't hand out a flyer with a picture of his missing Shepard-Blue Heeler mix named Adalida. Her picture is plastered to the back of his truck.

"She was stolen August 22 at 103rd and Blanding Blvd. at the Sav-a-Lot food store," said Chambers.
