If you are looking to adopt a dog, why wouldn't you want to get a puppy? I get it, my family and I did the same exact thing and we wouldn't trade Emmy Lou for any other dog. However, when we go to get our next pooch, we will be looking into adopting a retired military service dog because they need homes too!

Now, this process is not for those who want their dog today. It can be a long vetting process. It has to be. Think about it: These are trained military service dogs, and the military needs to make sure they are going to owners who can care and love them for their service!

If you are interested in adopting one of these wonderful dogs, fill out the paperwork online and send it on it!
