Dexter The Bomb-Sniffing Dog Gets An Amazing Welcome Home

by Paul Morris
Paul is a proud Southerner who enjoys long walks in the woods, sweet tea, and watching movies. He’s also an expert pastry chef and will share his rhubarb-berry pie recipe with just about anyone who asks. He loves America and playing with animals of all kinds. When he isn't writing about the things he loves most, you can find him in the great outdoors!

Dexter has saved the lives of countless American soldiers and Marines, and an untold number of innocent civilians.

With his amazing nose, he managed to detect a garbage truck filled with C-4 explosives that would have killed hundreds of Americans.

Working 15 hours a day for six years straight, Dexter has truly earned his retirement. Getting the best food possible, and surrounded by friends, Dexter will live out the rest of his days in pure comfort, thanks to the amazing men and women of the Patriot Guard.

Dexter served in both Iraq and Afghanistan. But when he was set to be released from duty, it took the nonprofit group “Save-A-Vet” to rescue him from being euthanized.

“He’s got doctors that will work on him for free… He’s going to get a nice fat steak… If he gets along with people, we’ll bring him around people, if he gets along with animals, we’ll bring him to a farm so he can play with animals. Whatever he wants, we’ll give him, he’s earned it!”

For whatever reason, these brave animals aren’t yet classified as official “veterans” just as police dogs are classified as legitimate “officers.” However, Dexter is a special case; he’s getting the official ceremony that will induct him as an official veteran!

Thank goodness for Dexter and the countless animals that have saved American lives over the years. These animals risk their lives for their human friends, and thanks to dogs like Dexter, a lot of American families get the chance to say “welcome home” to their loved ones. But now it’s Dexter’s turn to be welcomed home!

Welcome home, Dexter, and congratulations!
