Military Heroes: A Salute to our Dogs on Veterans Day

Veterans Day dog

As Veteran’s Day is approaching, I thought it would be appropriate to re-visit our most popular blog post of all times regarding the dogs who have served us in the military. Kudos to the brave canines who have ventured into dangerous situations, sometimes giving their lives for our freedom. We salute them. See blog post on military dogs

Gabe was the most successful detection dog in Iraq in 2006-2007, receiving more than 40 awards including three Army Commendation Medals and an Army Achievement metal. Now he’s competing against seven other hero dogs to become the American Humane Association’s 2012 Hero Dog. (Photo courtesy of Sgt. 1st Class Charles Shuck)
