Peter — Service
I believe that Peter deserves the title of American Hero Dog, because he has not only had a huge impact on my life but on others as well. He brings happiness wherever he goes and has even helped some bed-sick people by going to their side and bring them joy. He is very caring and is very responsive to me. I’ve had him since he was 8 weeks old and he has truly become my best friend. When I was honorably discharged from the Navy due to a medical illness I had lost hope in figuring out what to do in life. It wasn’t until I found Peter that I felt like life was dull and grey. He has given my smile back and he makes me laugh like no one has before, and on some days when my depression and anxiety hit, he’s always there by my side, waiting to help me feel better. He has saved my life in my time of need and he’s helped others feel happiness too, where they once felt lost, and they thanked him for his work in being there for us both. He is an amazing dog, very intuitive, and I’m very thankful that he’s in my life!
