On this Veterans’ Day 2015 we received word that a young hero died after serving our country and now his dog is in desperate need of a home.
Rambo’s soldier dad adopted him as a pup after returning from deployment. We hear that getting a dog was the first thing on his mind when he came home, and at Pets for Patriots we know the healing power of companion pets for our veterans and military service members.
Tragically, three years later Rambo’s soldier was killed after returning from combat deployment.
Grief stricken, this hero’s parents took Rambo in. Not only would their son have wanted it that way, but Rambo was a living, loving reminder of their late son. Since that time our hero’s father has fallen into ill health and Rambo’s mom was physically unable to care for the big, beautiful dog.
Rambo is completely heart broken, stressed and mentally deteriorating at the shelter. He needs stability in his life, and a family to love him as much as his late soldier did – and as much as the good folks at the shelter do now. They don’t want to see him suffer any longer, and neither do we.
A little more about Rambo:
- Six years old, 120 pounds
- Up-to-date on all vaccinations
- Completed Good Canine Citizen training
- Would do best as the only dog with a young, active family
Please do not contact Pets for Patriots about Rambo; we are sharing his story in honor of his fallen soldier. All serious inquiries about adoption, foster or qualified rescue are welcome, and must be directed to the shelter caring for him:

Let’s get this boy the loving home he deserves, and that his late dad would want for him.
