MWD Memorial
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

Monument. Located at the Rancho Coastal Humane Society Encinitas, California, the Military Working Dog (MWD) Memorial is the first of it's kind on America's West Coast in San Diego County. Dedicated on April 16, 2011, the monument is to honor all military working dogs and their handlers, past, present and future. The memorial consists of a 4-foot round polished granite slab and includes the crests of each military branch. On top the slab, sits the sculpture of military dog Chyba number C260. Before her death from cancer at age 11, Chyba was an adopted German Shepherd which retired from the 95th MP Battalion, US Army in Stuttgart, Germany and also served as a Patrol-Narcotics Detector Dog in the Iraq War for 6 months in 2004. Surrounding the memorial, is a flag court yard with engraved memory bricks, which can be purchased for personal dedications. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
