Thank you for visiting Retired Paws.  In July of 2011 I had an idea to help retired law enforcement canines; with a lot of help from many people my idea became a reality.  I am currently a United States Border Patrol Agent Canine Instructor.  I have been working with detection canines for over 10 years and I love everything about the canine program.  Throughout my career working with canines, I have become amazed and I am in awe of some of the capabilities that these four-legged heroes can do.  I know there were times my canine probably saved my life and some of the lives of the Agents that I was working with. I feel a great sense of gratitude to my partner, but I also feel I owe her something for everything that she has done for me and this country. I wanted to set up this organization to aid the canines once they retire from law enforcement to help them live a better life.Read More
