Some dogs have all the luck and that is the case with the Griffon. The 6-month-old has been wandering the streets for so long that he has almost given up on finding a family of his own.
Then, his wanderings bring him into the arms of a man who saves him in the most unlikely of places: An overseas naval base.
A US Navy Commander saw the little dog and immediately realized it wouldn’t last long alone in such a dangerous environment, holding the puppy in his lap as he was reminded of the motto of your unit. Whoever’s alive will live, and he knows the same applies to this little soul, Paws of War, a nonprofit that provides sniffer dogs for veterans and first responders first.
Before long, everyone on the base heard about Griffon and wanted to meet him. When the Commander stepped up to care for Griffon, he formed a strong bond with the puppy that followed him everywhere, the post continued. “Little Griffon has become a family. The puppy is a bright spot in the days of everyone who meets it.”
The hero commander, who will not be named, decided to adopt Griffon and bring him home when he returned to the States Side. And, while few details can be shared, Paws of War spokesman Gary Baumann said the commander and Griffon will meet again soon. Griffon is a super dog, Baumann says, “He loves everyone and every dog he meets.”
“We hope to have a reunion soon,” Baumann said. “The commander is from Maryland and has a wife and children to bring Griffon home.”
