The clever Great Pyrenees, now 2 years old and thriving, has not only gone on to grow a full coat of shiny hair – she recently won Purina's 2022 Dog Chow Service Dog Salute Program. The yearly competition spotlights service dogs who have impacted the lives of their veteran owners.
As such, the $25,000 award will go to Ivy’s training organization, Operation Freedom Paws, whose motto – "Four paws, two feet, one team" – encapsulates the bond between Lunn and Ivy.
Lunn is just one of the many individuals at ASU who put “service above self” every day; an act of virtue we spotlight and honor during Salute to Service Week. All Sun Devils are encouraged to participate in the many events that will be taking place today and tomorrow, Veteran’s day, as part of a larger celebration of individuals in Arizona and beyond who have dutifully served their communities. Enterprise Technology thanks all team members who have served, and extends its gratitude for their diligence and bravery.
