Cila otherwise known as Cila M389, is a Labrador Retriever that served in the military in nearly 100 Iraq missions and screened sites for presidential visits across the United States. She worked with Army Sgt. Jason Bos on many of these missions but when her retirement came it didn’t seem likely that Cila and Bos would end up together. Bos had to leave the army in 2012 due to an injury.
Her whole life has been about working. Now it’s time for her to worry about just relaxing,
Bos investigated his options in trying to welcome back Cila to America via the American Humane Association and Mission K9 Rescue. They assisted with the costs in flying Cila back from Germany to Chicago. It’s rare that these dogs get reunited with their handlers and Bos felt fortunate to have the opportunity to get Cila back.
