Purple Heart Recipient Reunited with Dog

This was on Good Morning America today, and as I love a good dog story, I needed to share.

Corporal Megan Leavey, a purple heart recipient has recently been reunited with Sargent Rex, her bomb sniffing dog. Rex had lost his sense of smell and was taken off duty and was in danger of being put down when Leavey intervened. She petitioned to adopt the pup and was successful with a little help from Senator Chuck Schumer.

Here are the happy pair, how cute is that dog?:

  7. I wish they would put all the retired military working dogs up for adoption. I'm sure if people knew that these animals were our veterans, they'd totally be willing to give them happy homes.
