Adopting Retired War Dogs

Military Working Dogs (MWDs), with their keen senses and tactical prowess, carry out explo­sives detection, search and rescue, sentry, and other military duties for which their canine attributes cannot be replicated by human or machine in warfare. MWDs have saved count­less human lives by their service, and have often directly saved their human soldier handlers through a profound devotion for which they either endan­gered or sacrificed their own lives.
