This is so messed up!
Usually we're totally for the U.S. government, but we cannot abide by what they are doing in this particular case!
Sources are saying that 1,200 dogs who guarded U.S. troops during war have been euthanized by the U.S. military all because they were labeled as “too dangerous” to be adopted by civilians and/or be used in law enforcement.
Also, according to U.S. Air Force reports given to Congress, between 2001 and 2005 alone there have been 16 dogs that were killed because their military usefulness no longer served a purpose.
And out of 2,500 military dogs worldwide,

Brit-Brit suited up as a waitress at the posh London hotel The Savoy to serve high tea to an unsuspecting super-fan, 27-year-old James Colburn, for the British show Surprise Surprise!

It turns out they were not exaggerating.

What happened next will absolutely melt your heart!
According to Irene King, an employee who was there working that day, the late actor did one of the most wonderful things we've ever heard!!!
We LOVE Jane Lynch's passion for helping out the greater good!
This time, Animalfair.com hosted a benefit for the Bark Business Benefit at the Omni Hotel, which helps K9s For Warriors - a fantastic organization that pairs rescued Service Dogs with veteran armed service members who suffer from PTSD.
This is just one of the many times Jane has worked with K9s For Warriors, and it looks like her Gleeful celeb-status has helped raise at least $145,000 so far, which is enough to pair up 15 service members with doggies!!

So, so sad.
S.W.A.T. star Steve Forrest passed away on Saturday at the age of 87 in Thousand Oaks, California.
In addition to his many other roles, the actor, who was surrounded by family in his final moments, most notably spent two years on the 70’s action show as head of the police department’s special weapons and tactical unit.
What’s more, Steve was a World War II veteran, having served at the Battle of the Bulge. Following the war, he studied theater arts at UCLA and was quickly discovered by none other than Gregory Peck himself.
Our thoughts are with his wife, Christine, his three sons, and his grandchildren.

Wow…it is truly sad how pets get absolutely NO RESPECT when it comes to the law!
Jeremy Aguilar is a military veteran who has fought in both Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as responding to Hurricane Katrina relief with the Oklahoma National Guard.

The pooch finally defended himself and bit the owner on the leg and butt….and now Dutch has been labeled a vicious dog and faces euthanasia as the former owner relentless pursues legal action.
The former owner even ADMITTED to
