Could You Shoot a Pooch Who was Smiling at You? One Soldier Disobeys Orders to Save an Adorable Dog's Life

Non-profit animal shelter Nowzad raises funds to reunite war zone dogs with the soldiers who adopt them while on deployment. 

 

As a soldier stared down the barrel of his weapon at the adorable furry thief, he knew his orders were to shoot the dog who was stealing jackets, parachutes and beef jerky. But then the dog rolled over on her belly and smiled at him.

Remembering how the dog’s friendly presence had greeted troops returning from patrol and how she had been an outcast from her original dog pack, the soldier knew he couldn’t carry out the order.

Instead, this soldier snuck the dog onto the base and named her Aneesa. She became their covert mascot and brought boundless joy and laughter to a bleak war zone.

But Aneesa had to be smuggled out soon. Not only was there the threat of her being discovered by higher-ups who had given orders to shoot her, but their base was about to shut down. They knew she wouldn’t survive in the harsh Afghanistan war zone outside the safe walls of the military barracks.

Determined to rescue their smiling battle buddy, the soldiers Googled for help and discovered Nowzad.com, an animal rescue shelter helping soldiers navigate Afghanistan’s animal transport ban to bring their war zone pets to safety.

In a covert mission, the troops enlisted the help of a local Afghan man willing to risk his own safety to carry Aneesa to Kabul. After an examination, immunizations and work fundraising for her airline ticket, Aneesa journeyed thousands of miles to her new home in Southern California with one of the veterans she had befriended on the military base.

Instantly, she bonded with her new pack. Rejected by her first dog family in Afghanistan, now Aneesa has is part of a happy pack that includes an older dog brother and a sister to wrestle and run with. 

After her first bath, her new family sent pictures of the makeover to the soldiers who had saved her life. The troops hardly recognized the now sleek beautiful dog who was gaining confidence and enjoying the love and safety of a new home.
