It Started With One.
CWD "Nero" PEDD
Honoring K9s started in 2017 with Contract Working Dog (CWD) Nero PEDD. Nero served 7 years in Afghanistan as a PEDD (Patrol Explosive Detection Dog), where he saved soldiers' lives by finding explosives. He came back home to the States to be adopted by a lady in Gainesville, FL where he spent two years in retirement before passing over the rainbow bridge.
Stephanie read about Nero’s story on Facebook and quickly reached out to Mission K9 Rescue organization to help honor the two heroes: Nero and Judie. Stephanie painted a portrait of Nero in Dry Brush Oil and her friend Alex Maciel provided the professional framing and matting as a surprise for Judie. The piece was delivered in time for Nero’s Memorial Service to be held on 1/21/2017.
You can read the rest of Nero's story below.

Their four paws move swiftly,
Their only goal is to serve,
They do not seek to make history,
But honoring their service is what they deserve.
They are your best friend always by your side,
Who guides you through fear and sadness.
In the darkest of nights, they are your guide.
The trust between you is endless.
For all their found caches,
Their greatest reward is a Kong and your praise.
They do more than just serve
So for all of this and more, honoring them is what they deserve.
~ Stephanie Weaver
