The newest addition to Josh and Lori Hufty’s home doesn’t pass judgment when the man of the house has nightmares or is having a bad day. It’s with unconditional love that Kane, a 4-year-old purebred German shepherd, spends almost every waking hour with Hufty. “He gives me a set of ears that is 100 percent nonjudgmental,” said Hufty, 35, a veteran of nearly 15 years in the Marine Corps who was discharged in 2010 due to post-traumatic stress disorder. He told the Courier-Post of Cherry Hill ( that Kane “never calls me an idiot or says I’m doing weird things. He just sits there and listens. In the worst-case scenario, he just wants a pet.”
