"For Army veteran Jack Dignam-Thomas, three-year-old Elias is more than a pet. He is a vital link to the world when he becomes consumed by the painful effects of post-traumatic stress disorder.

When his symptoms start, Jack can spend long periods of time withdrawing into himself, and it is then that Elias steps in.

By jumping up and demanding fuss and attention, Elias can bring Jack round and help him engage once more in everyday life."
