New Law Guarantees All Military Working Dogs Retirement on U.S. Soil

“Tucked inside a massive defense bill signed two weeks ago was a provision that will allow U.S. military dogs to return to the United States after their retirement overseas.

Previously, these working dogs were ineligible for military transport home to the U.S., and soldiers who wanted to adopt their canine colleagues had an extremely difficult time getting them back to America.

The 2016 National Defense Authorization Act changes that—and gives the dogs’ military handlers first choice of adopting them,” appeared on the Good News Network on December 6, 2015.
