At times we recall not the things that concern our smallest veterans that equally require our assistance, after retiring from their active roles. And in this case, I am referring to military working dogs. People should come up and adopt these dogs after they retire.
Those willing to adopt military dogs should get in touch with the Air Force. Whether you are a civilian or a member of the military, they want you to come up.
What I am saying is that its difficult to ignore such a face.
A last month news release by Air Force officials at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland called for people looking to adopt retired military dogs to come up.
According to the Air Force, dogs that failed selection for deployment are in high demand, but for retired military dogs, no one seems to be interested in them. The retired dogs are highly trained and can salvage a delicate situation and can even detect bombs.
For those who would like to try retired military dogs, they should be ready to wait for close to two years because the process is long and tedious.
If you want a military dog, you need to complete a list of questions, including where your dog will live as well as the kind of care it will get.
Not anyone who turns up will be allowed to adopt a military dog. For you to qualify, the fence surrounding your home should be six-foot-tall and no children below five years and should own not more than three dogs.
They are also required to provide details about their vet, two people who know them and bring with them a transport crate.
