My God - that is heartless!!!! To dump their sons dog in a KILL SHELTER????!!!!!

Thank you so much for taking her on.....with her training maybe one of the rescue groups can network into a working home for her if she is young!!!! She looks happy to be on the couch, so hopefully she can go to a real home, worked or not!

When I win the lottery I'm going to build a place for these guys to go. It's just tragic what happens to some working dogs after their professional career is over.

Hope you can keep her. She's a beauty.

I think it's only in the last few yrs that they've placed military dogs with the family of the deceased handler/partner. I also thought the families were carefully screened prior to the placement but it sure sounds as though this one wasn't. I'd also hope & wish there were provisions for taking the dog back if the family found itself overwhelmed with the dog.

This situation was just shameful all around.

It is waaayyy past time that K9 vets were recognized as the hard working, often heroic, honorable soldiers that they are. Military dogs in Vietnam were simply abandoned which was almost as cruel to their devoted human partners as to the dogs themselves. Unbelievable, isn't it? Just flippin unbelievable.

Thank you for going out on a limb to get her!

A bomb/military dog named Kaiya (peace) -- isn't that a little ironic!

Cat/dog test her and if she passes send her to me in CA! I want a new career -- maybe I could contract out as a bomb/weapons sniffing dog -- just kidding, kind of.

Again -- thank you for acting on her behalf.

At first I thought it was just regular dog behavior but then she started sniffing under seats and weird non-dog-smelling places. She then laid down by my laptop that was in the way back seat. Must be doing her bomb job.
You are so awesome! I am so glad she is going to get her happy ending. YEAH!

thanks for taking her out of that shelter .

if the story is true , it would seem a bit of a waste to have a very young dog with years of service ahead of her , highly trained , and talented , to not go to work .
Is there a local police department that might appreciate her ?

I can re-direct you to someone that will help place her in a working environment. He is qualified to train and certify bomb dogs, being former military himself. He is very generous and has been known to donate dogs to departments .

Sad situation. The parents must be grief stricken over the loss of their child. I can't imagine.
