Griffon, a sweet stray pup, had spent a lot time on the streets that he had all but given up hope of ever finding a family.
Until one day, he caught a lucky break.
His wandering brought him to one of the most unlikely of places, actually a foreign naval base, where he landed in the arms of the man who saved him.
According to a message on Facebook by Paws of War, a nonprofit that trains service dogs for professionals and first responders, “A U.S. Naval Commander saw the little canine and immediately recognized he wouldn’t survive long alone in such a dangerous environment.”
” Scooping the pup up right into his arms as he was reminded of his unit’s motto, ‘Those who show up alive, leave alive,’ and he recognized it had to apply to this little spirit also.”
It really did not take long for word of Griffon to spread out across the base, and soon everybody was eager to see him.
The statement added, “As the Leader stepped up to care for Griffon, he formed a strong bond with the puppy that follows him everywhere,” the post continued.”
” Little Griffon became family. The puppy is a bright spot in the days of everybody who meets him.”
The hero commander, who will need to go unnamed, made the decision to adopt Griffon and bring him home with him when he returns to the USA.
Paws of Battle spokesman Gary Baumann has actually assured reporters that the commander and Griffon will certainly be reunited shortly.
” Griffon is a incredibly pup,” Baumann told The Dodo. “He loves everyone and every dog he satisfies and loves to eat. He is doing fantastic.”
” We wish to have a get-together soon,” Baumann claimed. “The commander is from Maryland and has a wife and kids to welcome Griffon home.”
