Military Working Dogs: A Salute to Canine Heroes
Zootoo honors four-legged heroes for Memorial Day.
Since World War I, military working dogs have played a crucial role in protecting our nation’s armed forces. Today, these four-legged heroes continue to perform vital duties, from explosive and drug detection to deterrence and handler protection.
After their service, these dogs enjoy retirement in a loving forever home, chosen through a rigorous screening process from a long waiting list of potential adoptive families.
The beloved military working dogs, both past and present, have saved the lives of tens of thousands of servicemen and women, and Zootoo is honored to salute them on this Memorial Day.
