Pints For Pups: A Benefit For US Military K-9s
Meet MWD Bino C152 (an outstanding moniker for an outstanding K-9), who proudly served the 35th MP Detachment at Ft. Gordonas as a Narcotics Detection/Patrol K9 for almost ELEVEN years! Dutch Shepherd Bino has deployed paws on the hot sands of Iraq for 14 months as well as serving special missions with the Border Patrol in the war on drugs.
Upon retirement, Bino became the Official Mascot of MWD Adoptions, earned his AKC Canine Good Citizenship certification and learned a brand new skill set as a Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Demo Service Dog. Bino and his mom now go on numerous weekly “training missions” to teach Ft. Bliss’ wounded warriors and their shelter dog partners the do’s and don’ts of Public Access Training.
These days, Bino, the Great and Mighty Warrior, can be seen showing the newbie service dogs and their soldiers how to navigate without distraction or panic attacks in grocery stores, busy malls, on elevators and escalators and through airport security. Bino may not be on the battlefield any longer, but even in retirement at THIRTEEN years old, he is still actively and enthusiastically engaged in saving the lives of fellow soldiers.
All Natural Pet Delivery and Boneyard Dog Park & Drinkery both care deeply for the health and wellness of the pets they serve with their respective businesses, but also for the well being of those overseas protecting our country. Their hope is to raise funds and spread awareness about this worthy cause and have a little fun mingling with other local pet enthusiasts in a novel setting.
