PTSD sable GSD/Malinius For adoption!

This is Bella

She is a rescue of mine, i've had her for quit a bit of time, i cannot seem to let her go or find a right match for her. She's a 3 year old PTSD service dog, who's very well trained & just came back from a tour in Afghanistan with a fellow Marine. She's up for adoption, id love for her to go to a service member who could use her & whats she's been trained to do her whole life! She loves working & pleasing. She will be by your side every second. Id love to keep her as a "pet" but she's much happier with her vest on & working. Ive been taking her as a therapy dog visiting nursing homes, schools & hospitals to kinda just get her out there & "working" to keep her happy. Im wiling to give her to someone who needs her.. Reply or PM me if interested, We are in San Diego area.

Son joining Air Force - Wants to adopt GSD

Greetings! My son wants to follow his grandfather's footsteps and join the Air Force. He wants to become a member of the Security Force. He wants to adopt a GSD puppy before he signs up, and then bring the dog with him as a personal pet.

Since he wants to be in the Security Force (military police) he'd also like for his dog to be his K-9 companion.

So I guess I have 3 questions:

1. What are the rules and consideration of the Air Force military in allowing personal dogs. If allowed, will they consider using the dog as a Service Dog?

2. Should he adopt a male or female GSD, and does it matter?

3. The GSD that he adopts will be in my home till deployment and come home during leave. We own a Chihuahua and 5 cats. We had a GSD die from old age a few years ago, so they are used to big dogs. We want the puppy to grow up as part of the family. Since I'm on disability and can't afford a multi-thousand papered dog with work history....where can we find (if at all) a puppy for my son suitable for his purpose? We don't care about papers, but we want a purebred. We will be happy to pay a reasonable re-homing fee. Any help would be appreciated. My son graduates High School in June.

Best regards,

Peter M. White
