Bush Sr.: This Adorable Therapy Dog Just Landed a High-Profile Veteran Client

If you search the internet for information about service dogs for veterans, you’ll find plenty of nonprofit organizations that train these pups and place them with veterans in need. Some of these service dogs are trained specifically to deal with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). A recent study from Purdue University showed how helpful therapy dogs can be in treating PTSD.

Other therapy dogs are raised to help veterans with physical limitations. Recently, a high-profile veteran received a therapy dog of his own: George H.W. Bush, the former president.Before he was the 41st president of the United States, Bush served in the Navy during World War II. Now wheelchair-bound and without his wife Barbara (she died earlier this year), Bush received his yellow Labrador retriever, courtesy of and trained by America’s VetDogs. The dog arrived in June.
