K9s For Warriors Adoptable Dogs

While many of our dogs go on to become Service Dogs and are paired with a veteran, some dogs do not qualify to live the Service Dog life and are career changed.

The dogs eligible for adoption on this page are career change dogs from the K9s For Warriors program. While some of them have received training, none of them have completed Service Dog training and are NOT eligible for Service Dog certification.

Eddie loves to talk about how exciting life is. He gets overwhelmed in public, so a quieter home is ideal. He gets along with other dogs who can match his playstyle, but he doesn't like to share his toys so a home without children under 12 is ideal.

Ponte Vedra, FL

Cheddar came to us with hair missing, scabs & the sweetest smile. Unfortunately, his hips are not conducive for service work. He is a sweet boy that is a little shy at first. Loud noises & quick movement startle him, so a house with no children is best.
