The Fight for the Legal Rights of War Dogs
War dogs serve bravely alongside the men and women of the U.S. Military. Their handlers consider them heroes, but the military still classifies military working dogs as equipment. Up until recently, these canine soldiers were left behind or even euthanized after the fighting stopped. Lawyer2Lawyer co-hosts and attorneys, J. Craig Williams and Robert Ambrogi welcome Ron Aiello, the president and co-founder of The United States War Dogs Association, and Carter Dillard, the director of litigation for the Animal Legal Defense Fund, and discuss what laws need to change so that war dogs get the respect that they deserve from the U.S. military.
