The ASPCA says Sully the yellow Labrador retriever has earned the Public Service Award.

According to the non-profit organization, 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 where he assists injured veterans and their families.
