Army service canines are among the most courageous soldiers of our country. They are always on the front lines and risk their lives every day in order to defend their fellow human soldiers from potential lethal attacks. They would sniff out bombs and locate enemies.
These dogs have handlers and they spend a lot of time together during their missions. That is why it is understandable that they would develop a close relationship that can only be described as true friendship.
When the dogs are withdrawn from active duty, they are put available for adoption, and the soldiers who handled them are the priority if they wish to adopt the dogs.
Sergeant Tom Hanson was a K9 handler for the Army, and he worked with a dog named Taylor or Tay-Tay. As members of the bomb detection unit, Sergeant Hanson and Taylor have saved numerous lives with their excellent partnership. Taylor was so effective at her job that the enemies placed a bounty on her head.
Sergeant Hanson’s tour eventually concluded, and he was required to return home. Taylor had to remain behind in order to continue serving our country. Sergeant Hanson was devastated and unsure if he would ever see Taylor again.
The sergeant kept himself informed about Taylor’s situation. Sergeant Hanson wished to adopt Taylor upon her retirement from the military. Waiting for this to happen was tough for him. It was a good thing that Molli Oliver made it feasible for Sergeant Hanson to realize his dream of adopting Taylor.
Adopting a retired military service dog is pretty expensive, which makes the vast majority of handlers who wish to adopt their former war companions decide against doing so. Sergeant Hanson was, however, extraordinarily fortunate when he met Molli. Molli is a flight attendant with a passion for reconnecting retired military service canines with their previous handlers.
Molli feels that the dogs should be reunited with the individuals they served alongside a war, and that the handlers should be the ones to adopt the dog they’ve grown to love and become friends with. Therefore, when Taylor retired, Molli paid for his adoption and gave him to Sergeant Hanson. By that time, the sergeant and Taylor had been together for two years.
Sergeant Hanson was anxious while waiting for Taylor at the arrivals area in the airport. He was unsure if Taylor would still recognize him.
As soon as Taylor entered the arrivals area, she spotted Sergeant Hanson and was really happy about their reunion.
After two years of waiting, Sergeant Hanson became pretty emotional and couldn’t believe he was finally reunited with Taylor.
The dog now has a forever home where she may live for the rest of her life in peace.
