PASS CHRISTIAN, Miss. – A Pass Christian man has cloned his service dog after discovering it had been diagnosed with cancer.
Davis Hawn returned from South Korea nine months ago and came back with not one, but two versions of his service dog, Booster. The cloning was done by Dr. Hwang Woo-suk.
Booster, a Golden Retriever, was given to Hawn after being diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder.
Hawn told WLOX that, “Booster saved my life once. He changed my life.”
He continued, “I was an introvert. Now, I’m an extrovert.”
Hawn says his two new dogs, Booster and Busted, have personalities that are very similar to their father.
Sadly, Booster is dealing with his second round of cancer and Hawn says he isn’t expected to live much longer.
