|Cory and Ali bond|
Corporal Cory Bracy, USMC may understand the meaning of the old saying, “A dog is a man’s best friend” more than most as a Marine who trains with dogs who will deploy into combat.
|Training with Ali in Yuma|
|Cory deploys with Blade|
With Cory’s injuries, he looked to adopt a service dog to help him with his stability and it only seemed fitting to adopt one of the dogs he had trained with. Blade’s aggressiveness wouldn’t allow him to be adopted, but the kennels have allowed Cory the opportunity to adopt his first dog, Ali, in his stead.
To support Cory’s use of a service dog, Hope For The Warriors® purchased the required dog harness needed for Cory’s stability and balance. Providing the harness is just one way that Hope For The Warriors® aims to restore self, family and hope for wounded service members, their families, and families of the fallen.
We are pleased that Ali’s adoption will soon be complete and Hope For The Warriors® hopes that this harness will help the two friends remain happy and healthy together for years to come.
