England’s Ministry of Defense is on the defense regarding its decision to euthanize two guard dogs that were used to protect Prince William – just a few days after he worked his final shift at RAF Valley in Anglesey.

The Duke of Cambridge announced that he wanted to focus on his Royal duties and charity work after working his last operational shift on Sept. 10.

The patrol dogs were part of a unit protecting the Duke. A spokesperson from the Ministry said that Brus, a Belgian shepherd, was at the end of his working life, while Blade, a German shepherd, had to be put down due to “behavioral issues.”

The spokesman said, “It is true two dogs have been put down, a couple of days after. It was entirely coincidental.” He added that Blade also “had a record of veterinary issues” and could not be reassigned to other duties.

“The department’s policy is to rehome all military working dogs at the end of their service life wherever practicable,” he continued. “Regrettably, however, there are occasions when they have to be put down. This action is only ever taken as a last resort.”

“Unfortunately in this case the dogs were unsuitable for rehoming or alternative duties and so sadly, for the animals’ welfare, they had to be put down.”

    So, dogs are man’s best friend, really. We use these poor animals like toys, guards, for hunting, and then we kill them, and get more younger dogs to be killed again. That’s deplorable.
