‘The heroic service dogs were euthanized because they were deemed too “dangerous” for civilian adoption or jobs with law enforcement agencies, as well as for medical reasons according to U.S. Air Force reports given to Congress.’
The dogs were used as guards…..
Typical of the Obama regime. No allegiance to the U.S. Military, our K-9 officers or the American people. Bo had better watch his back.
FORT POLK, La. – Man’s best friend. Fido. Spot. Whatever you may call them, having a dog by your side is as American to some as apple pie. And while a rifle may be a Soldier’s best friend in most cases, for Sgt. Alfonzo Sanchez, his best friend is Cuki, a military working dog (MWD). Cuki and her handler Sanchez are active duty Soldiers sent to Louisiana to assist National Guardsmen participating in a rotation at the Joint Readiness Training Center here at Fort Polk….
Cuki is a German Sheppard trained to patrol and search for explosives. Sanchez and Cuki have been together for three years, deployed to both Iraq and Afghanistan, and have had missions protecting the President, Vice President, and the Secretary of Defense.
In the military, the ones responsible for a working dog are called handlers. ‘To say I’m the master takes away from the dog’s position on the team,’ said Sanchez. ‘It’s tradition to say that the dog is always one rank above the handler.’ This gives a sense of teamwork and mutual respect between the two….
The service of these animals should not net them a death sentence.
If the dogs are considered too aggressive for adoption, then retire them to a safe haven to live out their days and pay for it by eliminating the shrimp on a treadmill, the salt marsh for Nancy Pelosi’ mouse, Harry Reid’s bullet train to nowhere or some other disgusting form of government waste.
Our men and women who serve deserve better as do the animals chosen for service.
