Depot is a one and a half year old Shepherd/Husky Mix.  Just a week at the shelter after he was brought in as a stray, Warriors' Best Friend's trainer Bella, adopted Depot. With his piercing blue Husky eyes and his loyal shepherd nature and hyper-intelligence, it’s hard not to fall in love with Depot after spending just 5 minutes with him.  In addition to all of these wonderful traits, Bella has enjoyed each step of the journey in training Depot due to his extreme curiosity in every new environment they encounter together.

Depot was named in honor of the Home Depot Foundation who initiated the construction of Warriors’ Best Friend’s service dog training facility in August of 2015. Home Depot committed funds and several hours of volunteer help to build the welcome center and kenneling and training unit which will officially open later this month.
