Military Pet of the Year and Dogs on Deployment Mascot, Leonidas.

Leonidas is the 2015 Military Pet of the Year and Dogs on Deployment Mascot

Boise, Idaho – Pets Best Insurance Services, LLC, a leading U.S. pet health insurance agency, and the nonprofit Dogs on Deployment announced together today that the 2015 Military Pet of the Year and Dogs on Deployment Mascot, Leonidas, is now protected with pet insurance from Pets Best. Dogs on Deployment is a nationwide nonprofit that connects military service members with volunteers to board their pets for free when they are deployed.

Leonidas is a 3-year-old Afghan Kuchi mixed breed, born in the mountains of Afghanistan. As a puppy, Leonidas wandered into a United States Army compound and won the heart of U.S. Army soldier, Tim Johannsen.

“The bond created with a dog during war is indescribable,” Johannsen said. “He is my best friend and honestly the way he has changed my life is impossible to put into words.”

A leading sponsor of Dogs on Deployment for two years, Pets Best hopes to bring awareness to the nonprofit’s efforts. In its third year, the nationwide Military Pet of the Year and Dogs on Deployment Mascot Competition resulted in hundreds of contestants, votes and admirable dogs receiving recognition.

Pets Best supports the mission of Dogs on Deployment: to give military members peace of mind concerning their pets during deployment or other service commitments.

The Military Pet of the Year and Dogs on Deployment Mascot receives a free one-year Pets Best pet insurance policy, among many other prizes and benefits. Past winners have received national attention to bring awareness to causes in the military and pet communities. Johannsen and Leonidas plan to use the canine’s new title to raise awareness about rescuing dogs, or “battle buddies,” from overseas, seeking to educate military service members about responsible pet ownership while supporting the Dogs on Deployment mission as a whole.Read More…
