Olive is a 5 year old yellow Labrador. This is Olive’s second litter of service puppies in training. Her first litter, the Honor Litter, was featured on expore.org during the summer of 2013. The sire of Olive’s second litter is Ace, an accomplished show and performance black Labrador.
This is where life begins for WCC dogs. These Golden Retriever puppies have already begun very important work – helping to heal the invisible wounds of our Nation’s Combat Veterans. Recovering Service Members at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, the National Intrepid Center of Excellence, and other facilities serving injured veterans, are engaged in the critical task of socializing the pups through puppy petting. The litter will spend the next two years lifting the spirits of Wounded Warriors and giving them a therapeutic and purposeful mission. By volunteering to train the pups through the Warrior Canine Connection program, these Warriors will both address their symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress and prepare the pups for future lives as service dogs for their disabled comrades.
