Veteran Claims Wendy's Denied Service Dog in Columbia County

Buckhorn, Columbia County -- An Iraq War veteran said a manager of a fast food restaurant gave him a hard time about bringing his service dog into the building.

Patrick Welsh has post traumatic stress disorder, and his Australian Cattle Dog named Snip helps him cope with the condition.

The Columbia County man said Snip wears a vest that identifies her as a service dog, but a recent trip to the Wendy's near the Columbia Mall turned into a nightmare.

Welsh said the manager demanded to see the dog's paperwork, which he said is against the law. He said the woman told him that she did not have to serve him, and that's when the veteran walked out.

The Lewisburg company that owns the Buckhorn Wendy's called the situation a misunderstanding and said the district manager immediately apologized.

A spokesperson said the employee's intent was not malicious, and all service dogs and veterans are welcome in the restaurant.
