Sully is named after the airline pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, who landed a passenger jet on the Hudson River in 2009, saving all 155 passengers and crew on board.

He will be interred at the family plot at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in College Station.

The organization said Sully will be joining Walter Reed National Military Medical Center's facility dog program following his service with the late president.

W Bush's service dog Sully guarding his casket has warmed hearts online. He said it was going to be a tough week and he looked forward to it being over. The current president gave Bush, a decorated WWII naval aviator who flew several combat missions, a brief salute before the first couple left the Capitol.

A similar outpouring is anticipated in Washington this week during the state funeral for Bush, who died late Friday at his home in Houston.

In Texas, students, staff and visitors have been flocking to Bush's presidential library on the campus of Texas A&M University, with thousands of mourners paying their respects at a weekend candlelight vigil at a nearby pond and others contributing to growing flower memorials at Bush statues at both the library and a park in downtown Houston. "Bush of course was defeated for re-election and most people at the time considered him a failed president" because of a recession during his time in the White House.
