Sully served George H. W. Bush faithfully and he was treated like a family member as Bush's casket left the funeral home in Houston.

Sully is scheduled to join the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center's Facility Dog Program. He will work alongside other VetDogs assisting wounded soldiers by providing physical and occupational therapy. There is no doubt that the dog's days as a hero aren't over.
