    Another great example of the good people out there with a two way benefit – helps the humans AND the pups.

    Humans have yet to realize the full potential of what dogs can provide to them……

    Heartwarming story, dogs are truly angels in fur coats and it is great more and more people are realising their potential as healers of the human soul.
    Did they rescue that sweet little Pit puppy?

    I wonder in situations like these, who really gains the most, the animal or the person. Then again, what does it matter. Animals make us better humans. Thanks for the inspiring story.

  7. Wouldn’t it be great if everyone that really wanted a dog went first to the shelters and rescues to find a new furbaby. Our dogs are true members of our family.

    The dog part of the story is touching but there is something weird about his story – how would USAF personnel see combat or get hurt in Uzbekistan? It is no more a war zone than Nebraska
