Dogs are well known companions of the working man. Service dogs, K-9s, rescue dogs, herding dogs. You name it, the dog is going to master it. Because dogs have such a desire to work for and please their humans, they can be counted on to perform at their very best.
Chubs has been with his unit for several years and is so lovable that if you simply give him an ear rub, he's all yours. Or better yet, why not a piece of bacon? Every dog needs some bacon.
Chubs is considered a heroic dog because he lifts the morale of people who are stationed away from their families for an extended period of time while they serve their country. When they see Chubs, they're able to lose sight of the stress they're under for at least a little while. Morale is extremely important to our military -- without it, they can't perform at the best level they would normally be capable of when they are united with their families. So they need morale as much as they need water! Thank you, Chubs, for your service to our country!
