The Story

Lil B and I met in Afghanistan in 2011. She was just a dirty little puppy roaming the streets at the time until my squad found her. We began to look after her, feed her and play with her for she was a part of home that we so long awaited to return to. She brightened our days, provided us with comfort and filled our hearts with happiness laughter and smiles. I for one fell in love with her and the thought of leaving her behind began to haunt me as our time in Afghanistan was nearing it's end. I enlisted the help of my family, my sister especially, to help get her home. We had no idea how or who to contact so we began a Facebook page and asked for support. It was at that time that FOX News decided to do a story which eventually led us to No Dog Gets Left Behind and Puppy Rescue Mission. Two amazing Organizations based in the United States with their founders dedicated to helping soldiers by allowing them to rescue their newly found best friends from War Torn countries.

Over the last 2.5 years Lil B has been by my side guiding me in the right direction by helping me through my troubles. She is the best pup I could ever imagine to have by my side. So full of love, compassion, selflessness; she's just a gentle giant.

About two weeks ago she became sick. I took her to the vet ran multiple tests over the course of two weeks and recently discovered that she has Stage 5 Lymphoma. My heart aches to know that my best friend and savior is ill to the point of no return. I have taken her to the vet and received her medication and chemo thanks to Puppy Rescue Mission and No Dog Gets Left Behind! If it was not for these two I wouldn't have been able to do all of this. 

I want to personally thank each and everyone one of you who helped, supported and prayed for us. I love you all! God Bless
