Bugg, a service dog named after YRF's late founder Jim Bugg was paired with Lt. Col. Natalie Vines, USA (Ret.) who suffers from a severe traumatic brain injury, PTS, and other physical combat injuries. YRF sponsored the dog which was trained by Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs.

Recipient, Natalie is loving life, and a great new normal with her Super #ServiceDog, Bugg. They are doing incredible - Natalie updated us, saying:
"We are two matches made in heaven! ðŸ˜€. He is so awesome and crazy, silly and loving. I can't get enough of him. Here we are out on a Ruck March today with the hubby, preparing for the #GoruckChallenge in February. We make an awesome team...Bugg also knows his Ball is in my Ruck!!!
This is what we strive for every day, with every pairing - that perfect match that makes living that new normal beautiful. Just like Natalie said, and the photo shows - they make one Awesome Team!
