The Right Time for Ronni

A retired military working dog

Military Working Dog (MWD) M083 Ronni was stationed at Marine Corps Base Hawaii Kaneohe Bay alongside Zeus, another MWD and Britt, Zeus’ Marine K9 handler.

After returning home, Britt very much wanted to adopt his K9 Partner, Zeus. After submitting the adoption paperwork, Zeus became lame in his back end and tragically, he had to be euthanized.

Britt and his Kristen recall reaching out to Kristen Mauer, President of Mission K9 Rescue, broken hearted and asking for help.

Shortly thereafter, the family came across a Facebook post from Mission K9 about Ronni. Britt immediately recognized the dog as Ronni!

Britt and Kristen adopted Ronni a few weeks later and immediately they became a family.

Ronni, now 12, has his share of health problems. However, thanks to the annual Visa card from the K-9 Courage Program, the family will be able to resolve an injury that has been plaguing Ronni since his training in 2014, as well as pay for several pain medications for his degenerative knee and shoulder arthritis.

With some of the financial burden relieved, the family can focus on giving Ronni all the love he deserves!
