The former Australian Army serviceman relies on Brian to calm his post-traumatic stress disorder.

‘PTSD is a really evil thing… it just builds up and builds up,’ the 54-year-old told 7 News.

‘He distracts me from my thoughts. 

‘He’ll pick up when you’re down and either put his head into you or foot onto you or even jump onto you.’

Mr Lawrence first realised Brian was gone when he went to let him inside.

 ‘I’ve gone outside to let him back in because it’s hot … and he was gone,’ he told The Advertiser. 

The 54-year-old claimed someone took advantage of Brian’s placid nature.

‘He’s such a friendly dog. If someone just said ‘Come on, let’s go for a drive’, he would just jump right in the car.’

Mr Lawrence offered a $2000 reward for the person who found Brian.
