Here’s an update on the reunification story we shared last week! Anjin—a retired military working dog—has been spending lots of quality time with SSgt Reed, her handler and active-duty U.S. Air Force member. We wish them all the best, and especially hope Anjin enjoys a relaxing retirement at her new home in Venice, Italy! Through our partnership with American Humane, we’re honored to have helped provide the special opportunity that led these two back together. 🧡
