The scrawny black and brown puppy was the weakest of a gaggle of strays, and Sergeant Webb couldn’t stand to observe her struggle. She jumped into action and began caring for the dog, whom she named PupPup, raising her along side her other responsibilities.
Unfortunately Webb’s tour ended faster than what she expected. She was afraid that she would have to leave PupPup behind. They two had a very special bond with each other.
However Webb wasn’t willing to give up. She turned for help to Paws of War, a nonprofit that helps active military personnel bring animals they’ve rescued back to the States, hoping that they might could help with her beloved furry friend.
Army sergeant finally reunites with puppy she rescued!
“I’m desperately asking Paws of War to assist me bring my beautiful, helpless PupPup back to America with me because I can’t stand the thought of leaving her behind,” Webb wrote to Paws of War. “This spot are often very harsh to dogs and that i fear she is going to die if she is left behind. Plus, we’ve formed such a robust bond meaning everything to me. I can’t turn my back on her and would be forever grateful for the assistance to urge her home.”
Robert Misseri, the cofounder of Paws of War, immediately started performing on PupPup’s case. “We got on the bottom while [Webb] was still serving,” Misseri told The Dodo. “She was a few week and a half from leaving, so we knew we had a really short window to urge PupPup.”
PupPup was first brought to a vet so she gets some vaccines and then coordinated a family for PupPup to quarantine in until she could leave the country. After four canceled flights, PupPup was finally ready to board a plane to her new life.
When Webb finally saw Puppup, she couldn’t believe in her eyes!
“She didn’t believe it until she finally showed up there,” Misseri said. “She has called me a day since and texted me that she still can’t believe that PupPup is together with her . She said that it might have weighed very heavy on her heart if she’d had to go away PupPup there.”
Webb and PupPup can now enjoy their lives together, we wish them the best!
