Jack's Story: 

From a Marine:  Jack is approximately an 18 month old Desert Shepherd, tan in color, who is a victim of the Iraq War. While in Kuwait, I came upon him at a rescue and rehab facility, after I was taken to him and asked if I could help this poor soul to escape the Middle East and the memories of what he went through. He was caught up in a bad situation one day in Iraq, and walked into the wrong place at the wrong time. In addition to being beaten by a local in the skirmish, he was hit in the right rear leg with a high velocity round, which shattered his leg, and left it hanging off with not much left. After being hit by weapons fire, the locals kept beating him to try to end this poor boy's life. But he did not die. He survived to have his leg removed, but bears the emotional scars of his day in combat. Jack is very afraid of people, and shakes and trembles when someone approaches him. He is not aggressive at all in the least, and will allow you to pet him, love him, groom him, and give him all the attention you can muster. He will even give deep belly groans as his way of saying he likes the attention. Some people might interpret this as a growl, but it is just Jack showing his appreciation and happiness at the gentle touch he has not been familiar with.

    Jack suffers from PTSD, as so many of us, including myself, who have been in theatre do. Jack needs a warm home with a loving and patient hand who can guide him out of his shell,and allow him to trust again. Jack should be placed in a home with no small children, as the noise and screams will just frighten him. Ideally, Jack should be an only dog to start, as he needs to be the center of attention to learn reassurance and to trust people again after his traumatic experience. Whoever ends up with Jack will be a very lucky person. He is an incredible dog who deserves the chance to make someone happy, and to be happy himself. If you have it in your heart to welcome Jack into your family and your life, please contact The Puppy Rescue Mission & Sasha's Legacy at adopt@thepuppyrescuemission.org.  

Jack, hopefully a wonderful life awaits you in The Land of the Free, BECAUSE of the BRAVE.
