Military working dogs have been providing great assistance to our army, since time immemorial. They have been trained to detect bombs, weapons, and drugs, track and attack enemies. With all these skills, they have successfully helped our army win battles, no matter how hard and impossible they may seem.
Military working dogs are purchased from different countries, but about 85% of these are from Netherlands and Germany. Among the many misconceptions, these are not all German Shepherds. There are other possible breeds, such as Labrador Retriever or Belgian Malinois (almost similar to German Shepherds, but a bit small).
Hundreds of military working dogs are being trained every year. Unfortunately, only half of the trainees pass. Breed and body built are not just the basis our army is looking for in finding the perfect dog. They need to have the ample level of aggression and excitability. They must also be trainable and be highly reward motivated. They should also not have hip dysplasia.

Adopt a Military Working Dog
Did you know that military working dogs also experience post-traumatic stress disorder like humans? Thus, the government has allowed some organizations to provide assistance to these hero servants. They can now be adopted and thorough assessment of the potential owner is thoroughly done to ensure that the dog can successfully recuperate with the help of his new owner’s love and affection.
They have gone through tough times. Now that they are done protecting the country, let us help them feel that they are valued and loved, too. If you plan to adopt a good, old dog, please contact a reputable organization, such as the Pets for Patriots, US War Dog Association or Save-a-Vet, to make an arrangement. You will be briefed about the dog’s condition and teach you how you can appropriately support the condition.
