It's so funny how something as simple as a puppy can make even the hardest, toughened soldier melt upon a few kisses to the face."
From the Soldier: Here are two pics of the pups before we rescued them. they look better now but we need to get more pics of them.
Thor and Apollo are two brothers who were living with some Afghan police officers who guard the gate. These two puppies were spotted by my platoon during one of our many stops. We noticed that the dogs were in bad condition with no food and no water. We fed the dogs MREs while we were there and tried to give them water. The dogs were afraid of the police officers and hid from them. When we would show up they would come out and lay by us because they knew we were not going to hurt them. After a couple of weeks of seeing these dogs like that we decided to bargin with the police for the puppies. We aquired the two puppies and are now taking care of them in our compound. In our compound we made a small yard for them using HESCO barrier wires and made them a nice dog house with alot of shade from a Camo net. They are eating rice and hamburger meat that we get from out chow hall untill we can get dog food sent to us. They are cleaned up and really enjoying life with our platoon. Their names are Apollo and Thor. Apollo has the black snout and Thor the bully has a tan snout. They are wonderful dogs and are really warming up to us. We need your help to get them back to the United states and into a better home. If we dont do this they will have a low survival chance here with the heat, the locals who hate dogs, and the shortage on water and food.
These brothers are so blessed to have had these soldiers caring for them. We will not let you down. Start the Rally everyone for these cuties!
Be sure and put RESCUE REQUEST in the subject line. Thank You!
