NAVCON Brig Charleston has two dogs available for adoption

By Joint Base Charleston Public Affairs

The Naval Consolidated Brig Charleston has two dogs have come available for the adoption.

Kean, a small black lab mix; and Bartholomew, a plothound mix; have been training in the "Carolina Canines for Service" program, but due to their personalities, are unable to continue on in the training program.

CCFS is a national program that provides disabled Veterans with quality, trained service dogs. The program is designed to work with military prisoners at the Naval Consolidated Brig Charleston to train dogs, many of which have been rescued from local shelters.
The dogs accompany and provide help to warriors who were injured while serving their country.

If you are interested in taking either dog for an overnight or two to see if they would be a good fit for your home please contact the CFV trainer on-site, Laura Conn at Lconn@caninesforservice.org. She will send you an adoption application and arrange a time for you to come by to meet and work with the dog so you are familiar with their commands. The dogs will come with an overnight bag with their food, toys and bowls, but those items will need to be returned with the dog after the overnight. If you chose to keep the dog you do not have to return the dog but will need to come back to the Brig to sign the official "adoption paperwork." Both dogs are up to date on all their vaccines and are micro chipped. Both are free to a good home. It is recommended if you have another dog in the house hold that you feed your dog and the "wash out" dog separately or in separate rooms until they get more comfortable and familiar with one another.
