“CWD Hobo retired at the age of 6.5 years of age after working years in Afghanistan. He was retired due to seizures and was on medication at the time of retirement and for his life time.
His handler, Eldar Begic (see photos tab) missed him dearly and loved seeing pictures and updates of him. CWD Hobo was his first dog.
He was adopted by Michael & Teresa Henning on 8/29/15. He was an only dog and was very loved and spoiled. Over time his seizures became more severe and different medications were tried in attempt to control them but it was unsuccessful.
CWD Hobo will be greatly missed by his family and his handler. Rest easy CWD Hobo and thank you for your service.” – K9 Hero Haven, 23 May 17

“K9 Hero Haven is a 100% volunteer organization. K9 Hero Haven is dedicated to serving the military, veterans, and first responders by providing working dogs a home for retirement. The K-9s employed with the military and first responders are the best at what they do. They are expected to work in the most toughest of environments and face the harshest of conditions. At any moment, they are expected to selfishly give their live to save ours.
K9 Hero Haven helps to transition dogs to retirement. If at all possible, we want to re-unite a dog with its handler. We give preference to provide veterans and law enforcement with retired working dogs in honor of their sacrifices. We strive to educate the public on the roles that these dogs place in our world, and to highlight the level of training which goes into to these dogs never to forget the dedication to their service in keeping us safe from danger.
We work hard to find good homes for our dogs. We also work to provide dignity and respect to the dogs who need some additional work to prepare them for their journey to retirement.”
