Dak the puppy may seem adorable right now, but his ultimate purpose is a lot greater than looking cute.

The golden retriever puppy will eventually be a service dog for a veteran diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Dak, named after the Dallas Cowboys quarterback, will spend the next 18 months going through socialization and task-specific training.

Baylor Scott & White Health, Canine Companions for Independence, and the Dallas Cowboys teamed up to announced an expanded training program at BSW's Kinkeade Campus.

Puppy Dak is just a small piece of the expanded program.
