Adopt a .mil working dog - October 16, 2012, 05:18 PM

Saw this posted on FB.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -
You can make an American hero your pet.

The United States Marine Corps has about 400 IED (Improvised Explosive Device) sniffing dogs that are being decommissioned and need forever homes.

Most of the dogs are breeds such as: Labradors, Belgian Malinois, Border Collies, German Shepherds & Rottweilers.

U.S. Rep. Allen West posted on his Facebook page on Tuesday that the dogs are all incredibly well-trained.

West said many of the dogs have served in war zones and are responsible for saving countless American, NATO and foreign lives.

The dogs are based in Washington, D.C., so adoptive families must be able to travel to D.C. to pick up the dogs or arrange transport at their own expense.

If you would like to adopt one of these dogs, contact:

Man, oh man, I would do this in a heartbeat if I owned a home and wasn't away at work all day. Think I could convince the .gov that the dog is still in service and must come to work with me?

Regardless of whether or not this particular one is true...

About Military Working Dog Adoptions - Pet Corner - Entertainment - Military.com

Quote:
Because of their unique temperaments and training, the military does not surrender these animals to shelters, rescues or sanctuaries for placement. All military working dog adoptions are handled through Lackland Air Force Base, home of the Department of Defense Military Working Dog Adoption Program. Through a careful process of evaluation and selection, experienced military personnel place an estimated 300 "excessed" MWDs each year.

If a dog is still serviceable upon its disposition -- or official retirement -- from the military, adoption priority is given to civilian law enforcement. For dogs wo are no longer able to serve, handlers get priority and then the general public.

Wow that's some pretty shitty reporting.

Blindly posting chain emails up on a legitimate news site without any fact-checking.

Seems to be the norm for news stations with an online presence these days. When the "RIP WILL SMITH" meme was popular, several places picked up on it and reported his death.
