Service dogs of all types provide an honored service to not just its country but also to its fellow humans in need. All tasks performed by service dogs are essential actions. They are all, however, trained in different methods as each dog is provided a different job in the force. But, not every canine makes the cut to graduation due to its requirement of high demands for the job.
Dogs who are selected to be trained are sometimes too playful for the job as they just want love and to be cute. However, don’t panic, those dogs who don’t make it are not put aside for not being suitable for the job, but they are given away for adoption. As not every dog has it in them to be a service dog, they find their forever homes through adoption programs with maybe a bit of training they had learned.
BBC reported, that a pup was switched to a more perfect job for its personality and friendliness to strangers which was being too ‘nice’, from the Queensland Dog Squad in Australia to being the official Vice-Regal Dog at the Queensland Government House.
These adoption programs are not only in force in Australia but also in America for both trained or untrained dogs in squads.
TSA Canine Training Center Adoption Program allows you to adopt dogs without an adoption fee. However, there are some that do cost a certain amount for adopting a dog.
Mission K9 helps find older dogs their ever-loving homes, while FSD (Freedom Service Dogs of America) train shelter dogs to be service dogs but set up programs for dogs that don’t make the chase.
Even though the adoption fee can be quite costly, its worth the spend to just give those living beings a home.
