This story happened in 2014, but it is a timeless tale and a beautiful story of how one man [fo.ught] to give a dog a much-deserved chance to have a forever home.
A dog would not hesitate to save the life of his human, but often, dogs are [neg.lec.ted or le.ft] in shelters when humans get [ti.red] of them.
Every dog deserves to have a happy home and a loving family.
Layka, an [in.ju.red] U.S. Military dog adopted by her handler, Staff Sgt. Julian McDonald. He took her in despite [wa.rni.ngs] from other people against bringing home an [ag.gre.ssive] dog.
They are also brave and loyal, and such characteristics make them effective protectors.
Sa.dly, despite their fantastic work, military dogs are usually taken to shelters when they reach their retirement age. Worse, they may be put down.
When that her handler, Staff Sgt. Julian McDonald [fo.ught] incredibly hard to adopt her.
He said: She saved my life. That’s why I’m here. I owed it to her, and that’s why I [fo.ught] so hard to adopt her, even when people were saying she’s too [ag.gres.sive]. They deserve good homes.
And McDonald was right. As soon as he brought the dog home, Layka immediately approached his then one-year-old son and showed a tender behavior, contrary to what others warned him about.
You are so brave, thank you for protecting a cherished soldier.
God Bless you for your service to our country and for bringing this beautiful new member to your home!!
