Fidel and Gunner,
The Cape Fear Chapter is proud to announce a new match just before Christmas 2017!
Fidel served in the Marines attaining the rank of Staff Sergeant and is also a combat Veteran. He submitted an application to us in the hopes that a doggie battle buddy from PfV would help him deal with the effects of having been in combat. After quite a lot of intense searching, the Cape Fear Chapter of PfV was able to locate Gunner. Gunner is a very smart, young chocolate lab with a lot of love and a strong drive to learn. Gunner was a star during his training phase and did not disappoint on match day. He went straight to Fidel and gave him dozens of kisses and rolled over for belly rubs. After a few minutes Gunner met the rest of the family, Fidel’s wife and two young children, and had a chance to explore his new forever home. We found out it was his new Mommy's birthday and with Christmas coming up the feeling all around was that of great happiness that we could make this wonderful match a reality!
We thank Fidel for his service to our great Nation and for allowing us to share his story! We will continue to follow them as they grow and bond together.
