Pip, The War Dog

Wickshire Senior Living has a new 4-legged resident, Pip.  Pip is an English Springer Spaniel who spent the last five years serving our country in Iraq.

In fact, He is nine years old and now enjoys a comfortable lifestyle living at Wickshire Senior Living of Poland. On Memorial Day, Pip and all of our Veterans will be honored with a ceremony and a parade. The Ceremony will begin at 10:00 am at the gazebo in Fowler Center at 3457 Youngstown Kingsville Rd., Cortland, OH 44410. The parade will follow at 11:00 am.

While serving in the military, Pip worked as a bomb-sniffing dog.

First thing to remember, The average war dog saves 150 lives throughout its career. During his time as a service dog, Pip endured a burn wound on his tail and he returned to the United States three weeks ago. He has found his home at Wickshire Poland where he was placed by “Patriot K-9 Rescue.”

On Memorial Day, we honor the brave and courageous men and women who have served our Country. Come meet Pip and help us honor the Veterans who have defended our country!
