When LeRoy Gunderson was alive, he worked for the Detroit Lakes Police Department to serve and protect, and he did it with a big heart, the same way he took on the rest of life.


And that's just how his namesake, Sergeant Gunderson, better known as Gundy, serves and protects Pauline Ulrey, his companion.

Gundy serves as a leader dog for Ulrey, of Indianapolis. She has used a dog to see for her since age 6, and Gundy is now the eighth dog she's had in 48 years.
