After Justin Rollins was killed in action in Iraq, his family made an unusual request: to have the puppy he was holding, hours before his death, shipped to the U.S. To do so, they would need help from all corners of the government and military.

The story of Hero’s welcome and the joy he brings the Rollins family is part of a new series from Animal Planet called Saved, and if this episode is an indicator of what’s to come, you can be assured that we’ll be tuning in.

Welcome home, Hero.
