I work for Dog Center, at Lackland AFB, here in San Antonio. I regularly work with the dogs in our "adoption" kennel, and the other 1,200 dogs. They have plenty of dogs up for adoption all the time, and I may be able to get pictures of dogs if anyone is really interested in one. All I would need is the MWD's name, brand, and if made available, kennel location. Just thought I'd let you all know.

The Rescue section here regularly posts pictures of dogs so I see no reason why MWDs waiting for adoption couldn't have their pictures posted here. Please do so, and thanks for your supporting them. They did alot and deserve a forever home.

Abes,

Howdy. I worked at the DOD Dog School for 13 years. I was an instructor there. Taught in about every course they have and retired as the superintendant of the Dog School. For anyone that hasn't seen that place, that's a lot of dogs. ha ha.

Hello,
I was recently made aware through e-mail of a 6 1/2 year old female GSD, bomb sniffer that served in Iraq. I don't know how much traffic this forum gets, so I'm not going to post a lot of info here.

What I know about the dog is, like I said, female, black and tan saddle pattern, former bomb sniffer, served in Iraq in 2006 (I think), owners say she is best in a home without small children (8yrs +) and no other dogs, very loving. Her name is Sefe (don't ask me how to pronounce it).

I have asked a ton of other questions to the owners by e-mail and am waiting to hear back from them for answers. If you are interested, please contact me by e-mail at donovan.christoffer@us.army.mil. I have a couple of pictures I can send to anyone interested.

Donovan

I am in the process of trying to adopt one of these wonderful dogs now. If this particular dog falls through then I will continue to look. I feel like these dogs have served our country and been faithful and loyal soldiers therefore they certainly deserve more than just being put down when their service is over.

I wanted to mention, there are a number of facilities which adopt out these dogs, if you only contact one they may not have up to date info on all the available dogs so it helps if you contact them separately if you're interested in adopting. So if you contact Lackland and they say there are no dogs available, there may still be dogs at other locations.

This website explains the process and forms you need to fill out for MWD adoptions and also lists all the locations to contact that do the adoptions:

Default Canadian WMD???

Hi - just wondering if anyone knows about Canadian WMD's? I haven't ever heard of anyone trying to help these dogs find homes. I would love to get involved with that if something existed?
Seems like Canada may outsource their trained dogs from the US and they remain property of the organization.
Thanks in advance for the info - these dogs are such heroes. I would be heart broken to learn they are being left behind.....
