Retired Military Dogs deserve a New Leash on Life

Mankind has always had a special relationship with dogs.
For thousands of years, dogs have comforted us, protected us, and given us their unconditional love. Time and time again through the ages they have proven why they are considered our best friends. And nowhere is that remarkable bond between dogs and people been more critical than on the battlefield.
Soldiers have been relying on these four-footed comrades-in-arms since the beginning of organized warfare.
More recently, some 2,500 military working dogs and contract working dogs worked side by side with our soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq. And most famously, a Belgian Malinois war dog named Cairo was an integral part of the Navy SEALs team that helped kill America’s arch-nemesis Usama Bin Laden during a daring raid in 2011.
Not All Veterans are able to adopt the Four-legged
Heroes they served with for various reasons. If you

Today, military dogs are more important than ever in keeping our service men and women safe. With noses that are 100,000 times more sensitive than humans’ giving them an unparalleled ability to sniff out and detect weapons caches and Improvised Explosive Devices, it is estimated that each military working dog saves the lives of between 150-200 soldiers.
When not keeping our warriors out of harm’s way, the dogs provide our troops with companionship and an invaluable sense of normalcy and home under almost unimaginable circumstances.
Clearly a war dog is a soldier’s best friend. Read the rest of the story HERE and watch a related story Below:
