Griffon, a sweet stray puppy, had spent so much time on the streets that he’d given up hope of ever finding a family.
Until he got a lucky break one day.His wandering led him to the most unlikely of places, a foreign naval base, where he found himself in the arms of the man who had saved him.
Paws of War, a nonprofit that trains service dogs for veterans and first responders, posted on Facebook, “A U.S.When the Naval Commander saw the little dog, he knew he wouldn’t last long alone in such a dangerous environment.”
“He scooped up the pup into his arms as he was reminded of his unit’s motto, ‘Those who arrive alive, leave alive,’ and he knew it had to apply to this little soul as well.”
It didn’t take long for word of Griffon to spread throughout the base, and everyone was excited to see him.
“As the Commander stepped up to care for Griffon,” the statement continued, “he formed a strong bond with the pup who follows him everywhere.”
“Little Griffon became a family member.”The puppy brightens the days of everyone who meets him.”
The unnamed hero commander made the decision to adopt Griffon and bring him home with him when he returns to the United States.
The commander and Griffon will be reunited soon, according to Paws of War spokesman Gary Baumann.”Griffon is a fantastic puppy,” Baumann told The Dodo.”He adores every dog he meets and enjoys eating.He’s doing fantastic.
“We’re hoping for a reunion soon,” Baumann said.”The commander is from Maryland and has a wife and children to greet Griffon when he returns.”
