92 Military dogs have been flown back home after completing their service work back in the Middle East and are now enjoying great lives.


Military personnel are often respected and looked up to due to their incredible service; after all, thousands of men and women put their lives on the line to protect millions of others.

But people often forget about the four-legged heroes that also risk their lives to accompany those soldiers on their way to the battlefield, which was why the documentary "Coming Home'"was created.

It has been reported that there are currently over 3000 active K9's serving side by side with brave soldiers, including those who have been deployed overseas. Follow us on our Twitter account @amomama_usa to learn more.



Although it might be sad to think that some of these adorable furry creatures can die while on duty, they do it serving and protecting their country, and for that, they deserve to be remembered as heroes.


Recently, the leading global provider of K9 Detection Services, the AMK9, has gone above and beyond to bring almost a hundred of contract-working K9s back to the United States.



It may seem like a simple operation, but transporting the trained dogs for 7,000 miles was no easy feature, and everything is explained in the 'Coming Home' documentary.


The video is only 11:08 long, but the attention to detail and the precise planning of the operation will give the viewers a new appreciation for the military personnel who took the time to bring the K9s back to their homeland.



Many four-legged agents are left behind, so the success of the unprecedented mission was the ultimate goal. Thankfully, everything went well.

According to Jon Wertjes, President of AMK9, the canine heroes have either been assigned to new jobs inside the U.S. or were adopted by loving families through Piper's Playhouse.



But K9s working overseas are not the only ones that deserve the honor of being called heroes. Senior Special Agent Bryan Schaffer, from the BNSF Railway Police, recently honored Faust, his K9 partner, with the last radio call.


The radio dispatcher could be heard saying: 'Faust has just completed his last shift as an explosive detection and police service K9 after eight years and one day, and he is now officially retired. Faust, thank you for your service.'

It was a very special moment for both Faust and Schaffer, but, unable to say goodbye to his partner and best friend, the police officer adopted the retired K9. A happy ending to a brave and good boy.
