Chuck And Hayden

Chuck is a Vietnam veteran having served in the Army, and was deployed in 1967. He was accepted into Soldier’s Best Friend in February 2012 and was paired with Hayden, a very sweet, happy dog who happens to be part Golden Retriever, part Greyhound. She was adopted by SBF from the Arizona Humane Society.

Chuck is a very quiet man, not often expressing his emotions or showing his feelings. With Hayden it is different. You can see his pride in her; his love for her shines in his eyes when they are together. It’s the look of someone whose companion has given him a second chance at life.
