(WMC)  An 11-year old diabetic girl and her service dog are back together again.

Alayna Barnes and her family have been fighting to bring Major home.

"It's been a horrible two weeks for our family. Something we never wanna go through again," said Amanda Barnes, Alayna's mother.

On July 5 the Barnes family put Major on a plane to Colorado with a promise from his trainer that she would work with him to improve his skills. His trainer then refused to give Major back, claiming he was abused.
