Military dogs are truly heroes. Specially trained to sniff out bombs and ensure the safety of troops on military bases, these dogs are fiercely loyal and will do anything to protect the humans they serve — even though they aren’t given a choice in their career. Like anyone who has served in the military, it is only reasonable that these dogs receive the same respect and care from the Government when their tenure ends. But Bobby, the dog in the video above, didn’t get either. When his career was over, he wasn’t allowed to come home because he was classified as equipment rather than a military asset.
Instead of being brought to the U.S. to find a forever family, Bobby was left behind. Although we have no doubt that Bobby is being cared for, at nine-years-old, this senior dog deserves a family that is going to give him a comfortable life. That’s why we’re so glad that a rescue organization like Guardians of Rescue is working hard through their No Buddy Left Behind program to ensure that this pup can come back to the United States.
Over the years, the Guardians have formed a close relationship with U.S. military officials, which has made the potential for rescues like this possible. According to Guardians of Rescue, the cost of Bobby’s transportation to the U.S. will cost approximately $2,000. If you would like to donate to their cause, click here.
