Service trained dogs to be up for adoption at the Humane Society

RAPID CITY, S.D. — 18 service trained dogs were brought into the Humane Society of the Black Hills from North Carolina on Friday.

These pups were being trained for services such as patrol, security and bomb sniffing. However, they didn’t pass the course, so now they get to have the important job of being a family pet.

“Most of all of them been through obedience training, most of them, some of them have been on imprinting. Other than that they ajust didn’t make the requirements that we’re looking for in dogs and they’ll be great pets, great adoption dogs.” said Marcus Bowen, K9 Handler.

The Humane Society will not house all 18 — some are headed to other shelters. It is expected that some of them will be available for adoption as early as this weekend.
