SOUTHLAKE (AP) - A North Texas man who in 2011 became the nation’s first full face transplant recipient has thanked a service group for helping him get a guide dog.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports Dallas Wiens had the golden retriever named Charley with him Tuesday night at the Southlake City Council meeting. Members recognized the Southlake Lions Club for raising money to help the Fort Worth man get the dog last June.

Wiens was painting a church in 2008 when he touched a power line. He suffered extensive facial injuries and was left blind.

Wiens was joined Tuesday night by fiancee Jamie Nash of Garland. She suffered burns during a 2010 wreck. They met last year at a support group for burn victims and plan to marry in March.
