The newest member of our family. "Toi", biblical name for The Wanderer, is a Belgium Malinois. She is ten years old and retired from the U.S. Military. She is a trained bomb detection dog and her last deployment was Afghanistan. We wanted to honor a war dog and was given the opportunity to adopt her. We contacted Mission K9 Rescue in Houston and put in an application after learning that these dogs that served our country overseas need forever homes when their service is over. Immediately upon arrival at our farmhouse she "swept" every room. Once she decided it was safe, time for a nap on the couch! The wait time is quite lengthy but after having her for the last month, it was worth the wait and process. We have no affiliation with Mission K9, they had about 25 dogs on hand and most were scheduled for adoption the weekend after we got Toy. Great folks and great service to dogs that served our military personnel overseas. They have a facebook page if any of you just want a good read.....

There's no telling how many lives she's saved during her service.
They ask for nothing... only to do their job and please.
We could never repay that, but making the rest of her life the best it can be is about the best we can do.
Kudos to you and your family up

Outstanding! Right now I'm reading "Suspect" by my favorite author, Robert Crais. It's about a retired war dog who is now a police dog. Not the usual circumstance, but absolutely awesome. I love these dogs!

BIG TIME Kudos to you! I can't tell you how much I appreciate what you've done. I train working dogs and am so happy there are people like you out there! That dog deserves the best, and I think she got it!
