Earlier today we posted a photo of Hero Dogs Anita with her raiser and sponsor. Anita's raisers also raised Hero Dogs Candy - Service Dog in Training! Candy's away at "college" (aka Advanced Training at Hero Dogs headquarters), so she wanted to let everyone know she's doing great in this week's #FeatureFriday!

𝐌𝐲 𝐛𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐟𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐝 𝐢𝐧 𝐀𝐝𝐯𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞𝐝 𝐓𝐫𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐢𝐬: My full brother Hawkeye! He's so fun to play with!
𝐅𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐭𝐨𝐲: Any ball at all! I love a good game of fetch ⚽️
𝐅𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐦𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐭𝐨 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐤 𝐨𝐧: Hmm, that’s a tough one. I love to train and find everything enjoyable, but I think my favorite would be retrieving. As service dogs, we are taught to retrieve a variety of items including a cell phone, keys, crutch, bath towel, and so much more!
𝐅𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐜𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐯𝐢𝐬𝐢𝐭 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠: Any place in Damascus, MD! My raisers took me there a lot, so most of the employees at every store know me by name!
𝐅𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐭𝐲 𝐨𝐮𝐭𝐬𝐢𝐝𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠: As I mentioned earlier, I love to play fetch! I also love meeting new people.

𝐀 𝐪𝐮𝐢𝐫𝐤 𝐈 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐢𝐬: I am very fast, but not always the most coordinated. Sometimes I run so fast that I end up tripping myself causing me to somersault.

Yesterday was a big day for 10-week-old Hero Dogs Anita.
Veteran Justin (whose service dog is Hero Dogs Molly!) and his wife, Megan, sponsored Anita the puppy to honor Anita, their case manager from Wounded Warrior Project, as a thank you for all of her work on Justin’s behalf.
Yesterday, the Anitas met! 🤝💕

PS: in the bottom right photo, professional Molly is almost certainly saying "chill out, kid! you've got a lot to learn!" ... See MoreSee Less

Beautiful and Thoughtful
That’s awesome 😍....
