Kevin and his handler

Military working dogs are highly trained canines who go to war to help do very dangerous work.  Dogs have fought alongside American forces in every conflict since the Revolutionary War (but only officially since WWII).  The particular dogs in danger of having their lives taken, worked with UK forces on the battlefield. 

According to an article in The Sun, two Army dogs who helped save thousands of lives while on duty in Afghanistan will be put down next week, be­cause Top Brass say they can’t be re-homed.  This is despite having trained, military dog handlers who are willing and able to take them in and provide a home for them.

Kevin worked in Afghanistan (Helmand Province) sniffing out IED’s. He will be killed next week if there is no intervention on his behalf.

  1. Thanks for the story & the pics Lynn.

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I hope 2018 is a wonderful year for you.

  2. Unbelievable!

    1. When I looked this morning, the petition had over 200,000 signatures (in 3 days) so a lot of people are determined to see that these dogs stay alive.

  3. We have their six…just like they’ve had ours.

    1. Thank you so much! I was horrified to discover that these dogs are on “death row” especially after their loyal service. It’s just disgusting (and cruel) not to give them to people who are ready willing and able to handle them properly in a good home.

  4. You KNOW I’ll support!!

    1. Thank you! It just broke my heart to hear that they were going to put these wonderful, loyal animals down. I hope the petition helps. As of this morning there were over 200,000 signatures (in just 3 days) so perhaps we’ll be able to save their lives.

  5. Reblogged this on John Knifton and commented:
    These brave animals deserve better than this.

    1. Thank you so much for reblogging this. I’m hopeful that the petition will save these beautiful dogs. The last time I checked, it had over 200,000 signatures (in just 3 days) so there are lots of people who feel the way we do about the issue.
