The K9 Hero Portrait Project
The K9 Hero Portrait Project was created to provide our military, law enforcement handlers and adoptive owners or retired working dogs a commemorative portrait of their K9 Hero while educating the public about the working dog's service and career. This includes portraits for handlers who were unable to adopt their partners due to redeployment of either the soldier or the K9. Military members leave their friends and families behind, and these dogs become their new best friend, confidant, therapist and their child. The bond between a handler and these K9s is unlike any other I've seen or witnessed. For them, we create these portraits to immortalize their K9 partners.
