Hero Dog Awards - Chickel

Chickel

Seymour Johnson, North Carolina

Chickel is the definition of a hero. Not only has he protected me from multiple individuals trying to harm myself, but he has protected prior handlers far before me for 9 years. Many people know these dogs do not get asked if they want to join but get forced into it. Chickel had no choice but still chose to protect the handlers he loved. I have been told from multiple prior handlers that if it was not for Chickel being there for them, they don’t know how they would have made it. He has protected on and off duty with nothing in return. He deserves far more than anyone could ever give him for what he has done. I couldn’t ask for a better partner and proud of the hero he became to be.
