Meet Asher

He was selected from the New Hanover County Animal Services in Wilmington, NC to train in the Canines for Veterans program. He is about 2 years old, is working hard on his skills, and hopes to have his very own veteran before the end of the year. Asher spent Labor Day weekend at an outing with one of Canines for Veterans’ Board Members and volunteer handlers. We often wonder how some of the dogs selected end up in shelters. We may never know, but for whatever reason, Asher was meant to be a Canines for Veterans service dog.
