PITTSBURGH, September 12, 2023 – On a scorching September evening at PNC Park, local premium dog food brand, Bully Max, was thrilled to be at home plate for a very special ceremonial presentation.  Bucco, a highly trained medical service dog trained by Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs and sponsored by The Pittsburgh Pirates and PNC Bank, was paired with his recipient, a Vietnam Veteran who suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  As a proud partner of the Pirates, Bully Max was honored to provide Bucco and his recipient with a year supply of Bully Max premium dog food as they begin their journey together.

“As a registered nurse myself, I know the challenges those struggling with PTSD and other mental and physical disabilities can face,” said Lea Kinneman, Co-Owner of Bully Max.  “We admire the Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs team so much for the tireless work they do through their dogs to make a difference in the lives of those struggling with medical issues,” Ms. Kinneman continued.   “We’re truly honored to be able to contribute to this wonderful cause by providing Bucco with the premium nutrition he’ll need to fuel his service dog duties.”

Bully Max’s premium recipes are formulated with the highest quality ingredients and packed with protein to support strong muscles and energy, perfect for working and high-energy dogs, like Bucco.  Bully Max recipes are also fortified with added vitamins, minerals, and probiotics to support dogs’ immune systems, especially important for service dogs that are exposed to a multitude of different environments.

“With our dog’s training regimens and the physical and mental energy required to fulfill their service dog duties, I’m incredibly careful about the food we choose to feed our dogs,” said Carol Borden, Founder and CEO of Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs.  “I feel good about feeding Bully Max because their recipes are thoughtfully formulated with the right amounts of protein, fat and calories to fuel their active lifestyles without any of the added fillers that are commonly found in other brands,” Ms. Boden continued.  “What’s more, I appreciate that Bully Max is family owned and operated in the USA and have never been recalled.  It’s a great food option for all dogs.”
