What helps PTSD better than marijuana? Puppies, most likely. Or, at least, that’s the conclusion one might come to after they watch the emotional reaction a young veteran with PTSD had after he was surprised with a puppy for Christmas.

Dogs truly are “man’s best friend” because they are capable of offering unconditional love, something every human – and especially veterans – need. Someone who knows this to be true is 26-year-old Peter Coukoulis. Three years ago, Coukoulis deployed and joined the marines. Though he has since returned to his home in Tallahassee, Florida, he suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder.

His mom, Dena, wants to help her son heal, which is why she surprised him with the most adorable beagle pup for Christmas. As the video below relays, he was more than pleased to make a new best friend.

Even those who are opposed to the idea of Christmas (how is that possible?) can’t help but smile at the veteran’s emotional reaction. Watch the video below:
