(CNN) – The canine who served as former President George H.W. Bush’s service dog is receiving a top honor.
The ASPCA says Sully the yellow Labrador Retriever has earned the Public Service Award.
According to the non-profit, the award is given to an animal or officer who “has demonstrated a commitment to his or her career.”
Sully served by Bush’s side from June 2018 until the former President’s death in November.
Since his death, Sully has worked as a facility dog at Walter Reed National Medical Center in Maryland.
There he assists injured veterans and their families while also offering them comfort.
