I have a problem where I want to save every dog that needs saving, and I can’t. I have another problem where my father is military, I’m a military brat to the core, and thinking about the soldiers overseas, without their families, befriending injured and homeless dogs and then being forced to leave them when they come home again, hurts.

So when I heard about Connie, the homeless dog in Afghanistan who was rescued from barbed wire and became a friend and companion for the soldiers there, I thought that our readers might want to know.

Maybe we can’t rescue every dog out there, but I, for one, feel that this little one really needs to come home.
