Although all of our Golden and Labrador Retrievers are carefully bred and trained, not all of the dogs in the Warrior Canine Connection program will choose the path of a working dog. However, these dogs are excellent companion animals. When we determine there are health or temperament issues that warrant a career change, we look for homes where our dogs will live the life of a well-loved member of the family. Priority is always given to Veterans and military families. Preference is also given to applicants that are within 100 miles of our headquarters in Boyds, MD. We will place the dogs in the most well-suited homes and will inform the new owner about each dog’s limitations and training level.
The dogs are fully vaccinated, micro-chipped, spayed or neutered and have received various levels of training. It is important to understand that these dogs are not service dogs and are released from our program for specific reasons. There may be fees for these dogs, depending on the age of the dog and the reason for release.
