United States Army Sgt. First Class Luciano Yulfo has been waiting for a service dog for more than a year.

On Wednesday, the New York Knicks surprised him with Murphy. Watch the video below.

Yulfo was injured while serving in Afghanistan in 2014 and retired from duty earlier this year, FOX Sports says. He had been on the waiting list for a service dog for 18 months.

Yulfo got Murphy through a partnership between Paws of War, the Cow Harbor Warriors and Hoops of Northport.
