Millie Salutes Veterans

Millie and her Therapy Dog International Chapter 256 salute military veterans and support them year-round in the Clearwater, FL, community.

Around the country, therapy dogs bring cheer to veterans through visits to hospitals and assisted living centers. Many therapy dogs provide comfort to veterans who suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Remember to thank a veteran this Memorial Day and take a moment to remember those veterans who lost their lives in service to their country.

Millie, formally known as Keller’s Toccoa Millie CAX, is a member of the AKC Canine Partners program and is owned and loved by Robert and Paulette Keller. In addition to being a therapy dog, she is a coursing competitor and has earned the highest title in AKC Coursing Ability – the Coursing Ability Excellent (CAX) title -- for passing the test 25 times.
