Somewhere, right now, a military working dog is searching for roadside bombs and protecting our troops in Afghanistan. Theyâ€™re on the front lines, facing explosions and gunfireâ€”a memory that haunts some of these dogs for the rest of their lives. â€œDogs of War: The Fight Back Homeâ€ portrays how post-traumatic stress disorder affects our brave military working dogs for years to come.
The film takes you on the same journey as a military working dog (MWD)â€”from the puppy program at Lackland Air Force Base and training in the Arizona desert, to war and then back home again. The film specifically follows the story of retired Navy MWD Brix D141, who after a deployment to Iraq and ten years of military service, was diagnosed with canine PTSD. Now 13 years old, Brix is terrified of loud noises and being left alone. But with no cure for PTSD, Brix relies on some unconventional methods to just get through the day, every day.
