Adopt a retired military working dog

I get an email newsletter from Madeleine Pickens, a woman I greatly admire for her work to save America's wild mustangs. The newsletter is about easy things we can do to help the mustangs and I am sure you can sign up to get it at her website www.madeleinepickens.com
Today her newsletter is so sweet! She has adopted a German Shepherd named Chyba, and Chyba is a retired military working dog with 10 years of work, defending our country. For a video of Chyba see the above named website.

For more about this program see militaryworkingdogadoptions.com
Madeleine also recommends the website savingamericasmustangs.org

What a gorgeous dog! So sweet that your friend gave him a loving home. I believe our pets are gardian angels for us.
Blessings!

What an amazing opportunity. I am going to pass this along to my parents. My dad had a German Shepard when he was a policeman and he loved that dog. They recently rescued one...but they always like to have more than one dog!

what a wonderful thing! My sister used to have a retired police dog. He was great for their family.

Oh my goodness what a lovely post on adopting the beautiful dogs and giving them a loving home.
Thank you for your post and for sharing the information on adoptions - I adopted my dog Bentley and he has been a joy.
