Former President George H.W. Bush's dog receives public service award

Posted: Updated:

The four-legged friend who served as former President George H.W. Bush's service dog was honored by the ASPCA.

Sully, a yellow lab retriever, received a public service award because he demonstrated a commitment to his career.

Sully was trained by America's Vetdogs in Smithtown, and served by Bush's side from June of 2018 until his death last November.

Since Bush's death, Sully has assisted injured vets and their families at a medical center in Maryland.
