    I was reading a post on another message board about a guy who joined the military and was looking for a place to board his dogs while he was in basic.
    Do any of you know any organizations that will do that or where I could help point him to?
    After he gets through basic will he be able to bring his dog? (it's an APBT)
    Thanks

    If he's single the answer is no, he will be living in barracks and animals are not allowed. Depending on where he is stationed the earliest he could even hope to live somewhere off base would be as an E-4 or E-5, and that's pretty rare.

    :eek4: i can't leave my doggah

    doggah> army

    I figure I'll get a place with some POG officer who never goes to the field. That way he can watch my doggah while im doing real work :coold:
    Im sticking by this plan, unless someone in here shoots holes in it :wtc:

    To many people it's *NOT* just an animal ;)
    Please give some decent advice/information or stay out of the thread ;)

    BTW I guess he is going into the Army.

    Get rid of it.

    Unless you're going to give some good reasons why he needs to get rid of it (based on facts that you're able to provide me with), I certainly won't be suggesting that.
    I honestly thought there would be a little more advice coming from this forum. Thank you to the two who gave me honest answers about his situation.
    While my husband was Air Force, I have never been a military wife so I do not have the exerience to answer the question myself.

    they did give some good reasons to give up the dog, especially if he's going to be a single junior enlisted soldier.

    1) he will most likely not be allowed to live off base, and animals are not allowed in the barracks
    2) what was he planning on doing with the pet during a deployment?

    my advice would be to give it to a family member - that way, he knows it's in good hands, and he might be able to get it back when he's finally living in a situation that allows him to have a pet.

    Seriously - the advice given in this thread, while not always gentle, has been accurate. Your friend will need to find someone that can permanently take his dog and care for it as their own.
