Retired Military Working Dogs


It might be the last minute, but we have just learned today is National Dog Day and there was a bit of heated discussion as to what to do for it since we were caught off guard.

We finally agreed on a video about retired Military Working Dogs. 13-year-old Bino, a Dutch-Sheppard, is "1 of 8 finalists to win this year's American Hero Dog Award."


If the video doesn't play, click here.

We are very glad our retired MWDs are being homed now instead of euthanized.  They deserve it!

  2. WOW... we were so unaware of this "cause" or that it was an issue even. Thanks for shining the light on it. Classified as "equipment"? Sad, sad, sad.

    Thanks for sharing this today. It was THE PERFECT tribute for NATIONAL DOG DAY!!

    AROOOOF!

  4. HAPPY NATIONAL DOG DAY!!!

    Awwww beautiful Bino!! What a gorgeous doggie and what a gorgeous woman for helping out these returned military soldier doggies!

    I'm horrified these doggies when retired used to be euthanised! So sad. Glad that doesn't happen anymore!!

    I wish Bino and Debbie and all those gorgeous doggies she looks after all the best!!

    Take care
