It takes a village!
Throughout the summer, we've featured Hero Dogs and puppies in our weekly #FeatureFriday series and beginning today, we'll also feature the humans at Hero Dogs! It takes committed people to make Hero Dogs the organization it is—from the hardworking volunteers to the heroes our dogs serve—and every other week we'll be turning the spotlight onto them. 🔦
We're kicking it off with Hero Dogs Candy's puppy raisers, the 𝐃𝐞𝐧𝐧𝐢𝐞𝐬!
𝐍𝐚𝐦𝐞 & 𝐂𝐢𝐭𝐲: Joe and Kris Dennie from Damascus, MD
𝐇𝐨𝐰 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐰𝐡𝐞𝐧 𝐰𝐞 𝐛𝐞𝐜𝐚𝐦𝐞 𝐢𝐧𝐯𝐨𝐥𝐯𝐞𝐝 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐇𝐞𝐫𝐨 𝐃𝐨𝐠𝐬: 𝘑𝘰𝘦: In June 2018 I retired from the Fire Department and we also had to put down our Lab of 13 years that month. One night we did not feel like cooking and went to the Hornet's Nest Grille for dinner. Hero Dogs just happened to be there that night doing a fundraiser. As a family, we discussed the commitment of raising a service dog and after attending classes, we joined the Hero Dogs family and became Candy’s raisers.
𝐂𝐮𝐫𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐥𝐲 𝐫𝐚𝐢𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐠: Hero Dogs Vice Admiral Carol M. Pottenger “Candy”
𝐅𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐪𝐮𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐲 𝐢𝐧 𝐇𝐞𝐫𝐨 𝐃𝐨𝐠𝐬 𝐂𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐲: She is a very sweet girl and always wants to please her raisers as well as anyone she meets.
𝐅𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐭𝐲 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐇𝐞𝐫𝐨 𝐃𝐨𝐠𝐬 𝐂𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐲: Exploring new places, showing her skills and informing the public about Hero Dogs, Inc.
𝐌𝐨𝐬𝐭 𝐜𝐡𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐠𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚𝐬𝐩𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐫𝐚𝐢𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚 𝐬𝐞𝐫𝐯𝐢𝐜𝐞 𝐝𝐨𝐠: Realizing she is still just a puppy and has good days and less good days. Some training days are better than others. We keep reminding ourselves this is not a race, it’s a 𝘔𝘈𝘙𝘈𝘛𝘏𝘖𝘕.
𝗪𝐡𝐲 𝐈'𝐦 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐝 𝐭𝐨 𝐛𝐞 𝐚 𝐇𝐞𝐫𝐨 𝐃𝐨𝐠𝐬 𝐩𝐮𝐩𝐩𝐲 𝐫𝐚𝐢𝐬𝐞𝐫: 𝘑𝘰𝘦: My career fields have been the Military and a Firefighter. I’m proud to raise a Service Dog that may one day improve the quality of life for a Disabled Military Veteran or First Responder.
