Adoption next stop for MWDs servicing country

LACKLAND AIR FORCE BASE, Texas — Once military working dogs retire from service, they are placed in an adoption program that finds them a permanent home, said Rodney Sparkowich, the adoption disposition coordinator for the 341st Training Squadron.

“Basically when a dog’s service life has come to pretty much the end and they’re ready to retire, I get the dogs in the adoption program,” said Sparkowich.

Dogs that have medical issues at any age, when they are no longer serviceable, and young dogs that have been purchased to be trained as an MWD but are not able to complete training are also put in the adoption program, said Sparkowich.
