King is a typical wiggly, cuddly, energetic 12-week-old Labrador Retriever puppy with a big mission—to become a service dog for a veteran or first responder. He takes the mantle from Spike, who was recently released from the service dog program due to a minor medical issue.
Spike radiates cute and shows off his floppy ears and custom Atlanta United kit daily on social media. But for all the adorable Instagram fodder, Spike has a higher calling. He's training to become a service dog through America's VetDogs, a New York–based nonprofit that places dogs with disabled veterans and first responders.
