Sully the service dog faithfully served the late President George H.W. Bush until the president's passing in 2018.

The iconic photo of Sully giving one final farewell to his best friend in the Capitol rotunda struck a cord with Americans everywhere.

It was President Bush's wish that Sully would go on to serve those in need, so he joined the team at Walter Reed to comfort patients.

Sully's loyal service was honored with a sculpture of his likeness, which was unveiled at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library this week.

The statue depicts Sully doing the command "retrieve."
