I just think he deserves a better home. Here's how he subtley became part of Team Shah Joy:(I was actually sitting out this mission.) A little over a month ago, during a foot patrol, one of our guys spotted this puppy trying to chew a water bottle open and then trying to eat rocks...I'm guessing he was less than a month old. Poor thing. So he helped the puppy out, got him something to drink, fed and played with him a little. When it was time to walk back to base, this lonely puppy followed the guys back to the gate. There was no way any one them could turn this lost puppy away so our Team Lead allowed them to take him "home", to our compound. After a bath, flea repellent, and a collar made of 550 cord, he was part of the team! It wasn't too long before he became MY dog. He just started following me everywhere, pushing the door into my room, and making his bed under mine. So I'm getting some OJT in raising a pup.
We've had Trever for a little over a month now and it's no surprise how quickly he's become a member of our tight knit family. I've received several compliments from dog owners on the base that he has one of the best personalities they've ever seen in a young puppy; extremely friendly, outgoing, and trusting. He's well taken care of by everyone on the team and we've received severalincluding dog food, puppy vitamins, chew toys, flea repellent, and dog shampoo. He stole the show after I started posting pictures of him on my FB.
I've heard of a couple guys who've taken dogs home fromand they spent around $3,000. When I told the guys I'm considering taking him home, some said they would help pay but I could always use more help as well as more information on how to go about this in the first place.Something really good is about to happen for! You are going to get to come to the Land of the Free Because of the Brave!
Thank you Soldiers for rescueing Trever!
