Dog breed Labrador Retriever named Sally became a member of the Bush family in June of this year. Specially trained pet helped to open doors, to bring things and call for help, and was a loyal friend ex-politician George Bush Sr. had suffered from Parkinson’s disease and in the last years of his life traveled by wheelchairs and electric scooters.

A great joy to welcome home the newest member of our family, “Sully,” a beautiful — and beautifully trained — lab from @AmericasVetDogs. Could not be more grateful, especially for their commitment to our veterans.
