To whom it may concern,
> Notification of adoptable Military Working Dog Rudy / C013
> > Robins AFB has a 10 yr old Belgium Malinois that is up for adoption. We would prefer to adopt him out rather than euthanize him. He is a really fun and energetic dog.  He has numerous deployments and TDYs under his belt, so he truly is a war veteran. He is older (whelp date April 98) thus trying to find nice relaxing suitable home where he doesn?t have work only relax.
> Description of MWD Rudy / C013 ---
> Military Working Dog(MWD) Rudy/C013 is a 10 year old Belgium Malinois who is trained as an Patrol Explosive Detector Dog (PEDD). MWD Rudy has been medically classified from CAT I to CAT II. Rudy can no longer effectively and consistently perform his patrol duties due to his non-reversible medical condition. MWD Rudy has been diagnosed by the US Army Vet service with Bilateral Coxofemoral DJD (chronic hip pain).  His chronic, progressive, and severe medical condition renders him incapable of performing his assigned  mission requirements in the United States Military and to our unit. Along  with him not being fit to accomplish his patrol dog tasks, his detection  abilities have diminished as well. Rudy still has the desired behavior to  perform both function, but due to his deteriorating health, his body can no longer keep-up with the physical demands of our missions. It is the opinion of our commander with final advice from our Veterinary Officer, that  continued training and utilization of Rudy will only accelerate his medical  condition to the point where he will be subject to unnecessary pain and suffering. Rudy's current medication consists of Cosequin and Deramaxx twice  daily. 
> MWD Rudy/C013 temperament is suitable for adoption due to him not showing any aggressive behavior  to women, children or other animals. Rudy does not have any history of being over-aggressive or territorial.

additional info:
Rudy still has a desire to play, but only for a limited time. He has problems with his hips, he has served a long time in the military environment.  His medication will run about 350-400 dollars a month.   Any other questions you may have, I will be glad to answer for you.
