TAMPA, Fla. -- A local veterinary hospital helped service members from MacDill Air Force Base save one of their own on Wednesday.

Eddie is a 5-year-old Air Force service dog who was training this afternoon when he started showing signs of heat stroke.

Trainers rushed the K-9 to Blue Pearl Veterinary Hospital, who expect him to make a full recovery.

Eddie saved the lives of 14 service members, including his handler, back in May of 2012 when he discovered an IED while on patrol in Afghanistan.
