Over 1,200 War Veteran Dogs Have Been Euthanized By The U.S. Military! Why Such Cruel Treatment?

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.

And out of 2,500 military dogs worldwide, only 400 of them are adopted each year because many of the canines are labeled with traits such as "repeated unprovoked aggressive action.” Despite this — many families still want to adopt the heroic doggies, and yet there is no proper system for them to do so.

However a law that was passed in 2000 called Robby’s Law has many animal supporters optimistic about what the future holds for these pups. This law gives military dog handlers the first opportunity to adopt these life saving canines, and hopefully have them more adjusted to society while in their care.

We shouldn't be killing dogs just because of the traumas they endured in countries such as Afghanistan and it's harder for them to readjust to society back in the U.S.

In fact - we should be doing all we can to make sure these brave doggies get the proper care and homes they so desperately need!

    This is an arrogant and ill informed statement. I've worked with these dogs and they are genetically selected for aggression. Many of them are not capable of living outside of a military kennel environment. There are standards to evaluate these dogs - shame on you for your piss poor research.

    I completely agree. These dogs should be saved. However, where was your tenacity when we were sending Human troops over to be killed by the thousands? Asshole.

    Re: Wilma – You, Wilma, are a moron. Repeating nonsensical statements you heard or read doesn't grant you anything. You're incredibly disingenuous.

    I'm the author of Soldier Dogs: The Untold Story of America's Canine Heroes, a New York Times bestseller about U.S. military dogs. Sorry to be so blunt, but your facts are really messed up. The military dog program takes good care of its dogs. Those who adopt them out are careful to select just the right homes. There's an 18-month waiting list to get one of these dogs. If you want to talk dogs who served in Vietnam, then you'd be right in going on about the horrible treatment at the end of their usefulness. About 4,000 dogs went over, and about 200 came back. Fortunately we learned from our terrible mistakes. Please check your facts before writing sensationalistic articles like this. I'll be happy to send you a copy of my book if you write to me at the email address I submitted.

    Re: Maria Goodavage – I hope you're closer to right and not just taking your numbers from 'press releases.' Investigating it would be near to impossible.
