Canine Soldier Comes Home to Palomino & Friends
The ever-giving Palomino Armstrong & her husband Matt have taken in another broken creature and hope to make him whole.
This beautiful red/brown doberman was a military war dog. His handler/soldier was killed in action. Since the death of his handler, the dog has bounced around a couple of different places, and needed a home.
Palomino says: This dog is a war veteran (through no choice of his own), and not only has he seen action, but most likely watched his soldier die. We need to honor each and every soldier that comes home, and mourn those that don't. So, not only to honor Soldier aka Scooby, but to honor his handler and one of our own, Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang now has their very own soldier. He is one of the first steps toward fulfilling our dream. (We still have very little background on what he did and what he was trained for, so we are being very careful and going slow with him. We are paying close attention to the things that make him nervous or uncomfortable, and waiting for more information on this soldier. He definitely deserves a "forever" home after all he has been through"
Palomino's Big Dream for Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang, Equine Rescue & MORE - is to find a place with cabins for service women & men who have been injured or just need to decompress. Not all soldiers are ready to just jump back into the "mainstream life"..
Palomino adds: We are very excited to be able to step up and help one veteran.He has met all the other critters and we believe that he is settling in very well.
