The Rocky Mountain Dawgs Project was started by Gold Star Father Kevin Sonka after his son, Marine Corps Corporal David Sonka was killed in action along with his Multi Purpose Canine Flex, while serving in Afghanistan. Following in the footsteps of the original Dawgs Project, he has been travelling to support Military Working Dog units across the country, cooking barbeques for our frontline defenders since August 24th, 2013.
Now the RMDP has initiated Phase Two of their mission. The Puppy Project was officially kicked off on September 20th, 2016 with the delivery of two German Shorthair puppies to two Marine Corps Veterans in Alabama. Duke (formerly Snoopy) and Toby will work with trainers from Scent Imprint for Dogs over the course of roughly two years to become certified service dogs for the two veterans who suffer from PTSD.
