  1. The dog doesn't know what's going on or who anyone is. I have to wonder about an organization that would agree to introduce a service dog to its new owner under these circumstances. Did the guy even get any instructions on how to greet the dog, given that this was a surprise? This should have been a very controlled situation, and the veteran should have received instructions on how to behave. I'm happy for the guy, and a lot of people are going to feel all warm and fuzzy watching this, but anyone who knows dogs (and even many who don't) can see that the dog is freaked. This could have gone badly.
