Semper K9 is proud to announce the acceptance of service dog in training Perkins into our Service Dogs for Veterans program. Perkins, an 8-week old shepherd lab mix, is named in memory of USMC Combat Photographer Corporal William T. Perkins Jr. and comes to us from our rescue partner @operationpawsforhomes. “I nominated the name Perkins to represent the Combat Camera Marines that have given the ultimate sacrifice for our Country,” said Semper K9 Veteran, Jessica Rambo. “This Semper K9 pup, Perkins, will be a commemoration of Cpl. William T. Perkins, who sacrificed his life to cover a grenade and absorb the fragments, saving the lives of three fellow Marines. Perkins is the only combat photographer who posthumously received the United States’ highest military decoration of valor – the Medal of Honor.” #semperk9sperkins #servicedog #intraining #rescuedog #ophrescue #sheltertoservice #servicedogs4vets #veteranshelpingveterans
