Spot's Story

Spot’s soldier told us:

“I first met Spot on December 27th 2011, when I got to the Afghan police station.

The team we relieved told us the story about Spot. Spot was found as a puppy by a team about three years ago. He had had his ears, and tail cut off, also had gashes to the bone, and his voice box had been crushed.
But Spot was able to make it, and grew up healthy.

Ever since I met Spot he's been on every single patrol with us, no matter what time, or how cold, or how hot it was. Even if we went in our vehicles he would follow us for miles, thinking he had to protect our vehicles from other wild dogs.

He also did a good job at protecting our other dogs in our compound. Spot was never afraid of a bigger dog or many dogs, he's very strong hearted and dedicated.

He was always there to cheer me up after we had a bad day.

This dog has been through hell and back, and deserves a better home. He's became my best friend, and I won't leave him behind.”
Spot didn’t get left behind.
The money for his rescue was quickly raised and this spring Spot found himself transported from the Nowzad shelter to his new home in Florida.

He had a visit to the vet where he checked out just fine.

And a great life in Florida, but something was missing …
And then the missing part was there .. Spot’s soldier Kevin came home … and Spot was there to meet the bus!

And greet all the other soldiers too.

Now life is complete. For Spot and Kevin.
