“I immediately knew I had the perfect dog for President Bush,” she said. to reporters. “In fact, I’ve also mentioned Sully’s name in my excitement.”

Sully had the “right personality” and “temperament” to help Bush because he is “loyal, calm and kind with children” – all the attributes Cramer said was “exactly what the president’s team asked for.”

When Bush died, “did he want Sully to serve other veterans,” she said. Bush’s wish will be granted sometime in February, when Sully will provide animal-assisted intervention at the military medical center in Bethesda, Maryland.

Sully will visit injured veterans and help give comfort during rehabilitation sessions, Cramer said. “He will meet President Bush’s request.”
