Adopting Military Working Dogs
A common question I get is if working dogs can be adopted. The answer is a huge YES!!
Many dogs get retired every year from the DOD(department of defense) and need to find a home. If no home is found then ultimately the dog will most likely be euthanized, which is a sad end for a dog that lived an entire life serving his country. Instead of writing about the process of how to adopt I have provided a couple links that have information on how to find and download adoption forms and the process to go through.
These dogs make exceptional pets for your homes. There are many benefits of adopting a retired dog including
-A highly obedient professionally trained dog
-an outstanding guard dog
-a dog that is trained to only want to please it’s handlers.
-a dog that has a great temperament
-a trustworthy animal to leave with kids and at home and many other benefits
-a dog that has a history of serving his country
Here are some great links to go to if you are interested in adopting a working dog
Remember you may see only a few dogs up for adoption, but there is usually quite a few available.
Also, it is not just retired dogs that can be adopted but also puppies that were not suitable to be military working dogs.
