At Hero Dogs, Veterans are always at the forefront of our minds. Still, each November 11th is a special opportunity for reflection and gratitude for the service of our bravest men and women.
Last month at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, service dog Hero Dogs Mitch and his veteran met and spent time with veteran and Pearl Harbor survivor Charlie. Charlie is a WWII Army Air Corps veteran and Hero Dogs Mitch is named for WWI veteran General Billy Mitchell. Both men served in World Wars—both as Army airmen. Both are heroes whose service we honor today. Thank you for your service, Charlie.
Thank you to all veterans of the United States Armed Services. ... See MoreSee Less
Thank you for your service! Mitch you are looking good!

We're excited for you to learn more about therapy dog Hero Dogs Ivy in this week's #FeatureFriday!
𝐍𝐚𝐦𝐞/𝐁𝐢𝐫𝐭𝐡𝐝𝐚𝐲/𝐁𝐫𝐞𝐞𝐝: Hero Dogs SFC Ivy Robinson...named after a Vietnam Vet who earned bronze star. My owner Petra introduces me as "Ivy-boy" to be clear that I am a male although I am pretty and have a "girly" name. I'm an almost 6 year old Golden Retriever and my birthdate is January 1st. The whole world has a party for me. 🥳
𝐅𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐬𝐤𝐢𝐥𝐥 𝐭𝐨 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐰 𝐨𝐟𝐟: I love to hand people my business card and I do a pretty good wave "goodbye" 👋
𝐅𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐜𝐞𝐬 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐩𝐲 𝐝𝐨𝐠 𝐯𝐢𝐬𝐢𝐭𝐬: I like to visit Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and the Hebrew Home of Greater Washington where I get to visit the residents and work with some of my old friends...Scotty and Grant
𝗪𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐈 𝐥𝐨𝐯𝐞 𝐦𝐨𝐬𝐭 𝐚𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐛𝐞𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚 𝐇𝐞𝐫𝐨 𝐃𝐨𝐠𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐩𝐲 𝐝𝐨𝐠: I feel like I can bring comfort to people who are worried, suffering, or are unhappy. Whether they are adults or children in the hospital or staff that are having a rough day or children that need a little extra encouragement to read a book. I come into a room and people just light up and forget about their troubles for a little while.
𝐅𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐭𝐲 𝐨𝐮𝐭𝐬𝐢𝐝𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐩𝐲 𝐯𝐢𝐬𝐢𝐭𝐬: Man oh man do i love a good long walk in the woods and jumping over logs and taking a quick dip in a stream...now that's the way to spend an afternoon!
𝐌𝐨𝐬𝐭 𝐜𝐡𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐠𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚𝐬𝐩𝐞𝐜𝐭 𝐨𝐟 𝐦𝐲 𝐣𝐨𝐛 𝐚𝐬 𝐚 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐩𝐲 𝐝𝐨𝐠: We get so many requests to go on visits and sometimes I do get tired of being my sweet gentle self. Having to hold my head on a lap for longer than a second or two is challenging when I'm tired. 💤
𝐀 𝐪𝐮𝐢𝐫𝐤 𝐈 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐢𝐬: I love my mom A LOT and I'm not happy when she's not around. I'm very concerned that someone will take me away so I don't let anyone else take hold of my leash!!
𝟑 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐝𝐬 𝐦𝐲 𝐨𝐰𝐧𝐞𝐫 𝐰𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐝𝐞𝐬𝐜𝐫𝐢𝐛𝐞 𝐦𝐞: Sweet, kind, loving... ... See MoreSee Less
