Everyone, I give you my dog.
This is Torres. He is recently retired from the United States Army. He and my boyfriend were a bomb-dog team together in Afghanistan in 2011. While on assignment with another handler, Torres started to show some back problems, and the Army decided he would get an early retirement (he is only 4).
So they called us and we got to get him back since my boyfriend was his original handler. We are so honored to have the opportunity to have him in our family. He is such a wonderful boy.
And he is a goofball. He has adjusted to retirement VERY well and is a spoiled, silly dog. We couldn’t be prouder to call him ours.
Thank you to all the other service members out there! (Human and canine!)
