VIDEO: Military dogs return home to US after long tour in Kuwait

Still frame from video provided by NBC News

A “pack” of heroes returned home Thursday.

Thirteen retired bomb detection dogs took their first steps on American soil in Houston after a long military tour in Kuwait.

The four-legged heroes have spent the past few years serving their nation and keeping our troops safe. Now, the pups are getting ready for a well-deserved life of rest and relaxation.

The organization Mission K-9 will work to rehabilitate and reintegrate the dogs into society. They hope to have the dogs in new homes in time for Christmas. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
