SAN DIEGO - Life after the military is looking brighter than ever for America's four-legged veterans since one of their own helped in the mission to kill Osama bin Laden.
War dog organizations say the number of people asking about adopting retired military canines has risen dramatically since the mission involving Cairo, the Navy SEALs dog tasked with tracking anyone who tried to escape from bin Laden's compound and alerting special operations forces to anyone approaching.
While about 300 retired U.S. military dogs are put up for adoption each year, military officials say they received more than 400 adoption applications in the three weeks after the May 2 raid.
In past generations, most military dogs were euthanized once their tours of duty were done.
