Honor & Kurt

Call-Sign: “Squish”

Graduated: 28 March 2021

20200329_143801 (2)Honor was donated to us on Valentine’s Day 2020 by a very generous group of patrons who bid on her at the Kiss for the Cure event benefitting The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Honor is being sponsored by the Belle’s of Houston specifically for a Veteran from the Lone Survivor Foundation as part of what we hope will become a fantastic new Partnership with The Belles of Houston & The Lone Survivor Foundation.

She is a very bold little girl, even as a pup hanging out with the big 280234809_10159824073429694_3247243441890412141_ndogs and tackling the obstacles at the agility course like a pro!  She is very brave and incredibly smart (and sassy!), wanting to investigate everything, walking like a lady on her leash.

20200724_112037 (2)She is a great swimmer, loves to hike, has mastered most of her advanced obedience and knows a LOT of service skills.  Learning new tasks and snuggling are her two favorite things!

We had 17 Veterans from the Lone Survivor Foundation apply for Honor and could not have found a better fit than her forever dad and Veteran, Kurt! He spent 4 days with the Rescue in transition training.

Kurt bonded with Honor and learned all about her skills & the commands and vocabulary she responds to. They participated in our Monthly Group Program, and had multiple sessions every day, out and about practicing to be a service team. Kurt & Honor were also certified by our amazing trainer Sam (Working Paws K9 Training) to be a therapy team, so they will be going out and sharing Honor’s cuteness and affection with others! We aren’t sure if Honor is more in love with Kurt or vice-versa. Obsessed is the most appropriate term for these two!
Honor and her daddy now help other Veterans in our Rescue Family. Kurt is an Advisor to the Board, and have helped welcome Chris and Justice! Kurt and his wife Peggy fostered Justice, and Honor taught him everything she knows about being a service dog. See more of the adventures of Kurt and Honor in the pics below!
