Military working dogs need homes when their time in the service is up. On some occasions, the military personnel that worked closely with the dog will take the dog in. But oftentimes older military dogs who are retiring have nowhere to go. That is where the adoption of military dogs comes in. Let’s take a closer look at this. Maybe your next pet will be a canine veteran.
The Air Force officials at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland released information calling for adoptive people to take in retired military dogs. While there is a great demand for puppies that didn’t make the military cut, there is less interest in adopting adult dogs.
Even though homes are needed for military veteran dogs, there is still paperwork and requirements to be met. Interested parties will need to answer detailed questions. Some of the questions pertain to where the dog will live, and how you will be able to care for the dog’s needs.
Some prerequisites to adopting a military dog are as follows: You will need a minimum of six-foot fencing, no kids under the age of 5, and no more than 3 dogs that are already in your home. Applicants will need to provide the name of their veterinarian. References and a transport crate are also requirements.
