over 1200 war veteran dogs have been euthanized by the us military

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.
