paws4people is pleased to welcome it’s newest Tribute Puppy, MCLELLAN!

MCLELLAN is named in Honor of Bob McLellan. Mr. McLellan was born to 1st Lt. Robert and Dorothy McLellan, USMC, aboard Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba on November 27, 1950. Bob grew up the son of a Marine in Jacksonville, NC and later, Alexandria, VA. In 1971 Bob graduated college and joined the United States Marine Corps. Bob served in the Marine Corps as an Infantry Officer with 2/6 and 3/9. He served for 5 years and was promoted to the rank of Captain. He always cherished his time in the Corps. In 1976 Bob began his varied and successful business career. Beginning as a soap salesman he eventually achieved senior sales and marketing positions at Proctor and Gamble, Fort Howard Paper Company, Georgia Pacific, and James River Corporation. In 2003 he became President and CEO of Handgards, Inc. Bob found great satisfaction in hard work and devotion to a worthy cause. He was direct, humorous, and extremely generous. Bob loved to teach. He loved a good story, a funny joke, a good meal, and a cold beer. After being introduced to paws4people/paws4vets, Bob became a staunch supporter of the organization. His recent passing has left a void in many hearts. MCLELLAN will serve as the perfect namesake to Bob McLellan and perpetuate his ideals and philanthropic generosity.

MCLELLAN is an Assistance Dog for paws4vets Client, Christopher Twohig, USMC Veteran.
