Help get this pup out of the Middle East.
American soldiers stationed in Syria were on a mission when they heard a small whimpering puppy crying.
They stumbled upon a litter of five dead puppies, but one was still alive — so the troops adopted the pup and named her Harley. They took her back to their base, where Harley grew stronger every day, and she became “the best thing to happen” to the team in Syria.
Now, the troops are heading back to the US and can’t fathom leaving her behind, the plan is to send Harley back with one of the soldiers, whose name cannot be released due to security reasons.
So they reached out to the non-profit, Paws of War, to help make it happen.
“When these guys befriend a dog in a war zone it’s often what helps them get through each day,” explained Robert Misseri, co-founder of the Paws of War.
“These soldiers know how dangerous it would be to leave their furry family member there in Syria,” Misseri said. “We will make every effort to bring Harley to America so she can live out her life here. The soldiers believe they saved Harley, but really she may have saved them.”
According to their website, they only have until June 6 to raise the necessary funds to afford to bring Harley back to the US.
