Bomb-sniffing dogs were mistreated by the US Army after returning from duty in Afghanistan, according to an official report. The canines which saved countless lives between 2010 and 2014 were not given proper care and attention, left in kennels for nearly a year and possibly even put down. There was also no screening of people who offered to adopt the animals, according to a report from the US Department of Defense's Inspector General.

The Army allowed one dog described as having canine PTSD and another which may have received bite training to go to families with children.

Nice attitude.

No wonder they can't win in Afghanistan.

We are all bomb-sniffing dogs, trained, abused and then left to die.

The military should be shamed, but that would require considerable evolution on their part.

GITMO is still operating and waterboarding, for crying out loud.

More "heroes" acting badly.

We need to stop pretending the career is the same as the man in the career.
