Dog Travels 3,000 Miles To Reunite With The Soldier Who Saved Her.

It goes without saying that military life isn't easy, especially while the soldiers are on deployment. When they're overseas, not only do they face dangers around every corner, but they're homesick and sad, as well. Which is why it's so important for soldiers to have an outlet to turn to during all of the chaos. This soldier found his outlet while overseas, but when it was time for a change, he had to do some quick thinking before it was too late.

Rescue Attempt

Sean Laidlaw believed that he was capable of handling anything that Syria had to throw at him, especially considering that he had already served two tours in Afghanistan. When Sean and his fellow soldiers in the Royal Engineers were deployed by the British Army in 2018, he leaped into action during a surprising rescue attempt that he never imagined happening.

Syrian Civil War

Sean is an expert at defusing and removing bombs. Throughout the last several years, the Syrian Civil War has ravaged through the country, especially in the city of Raqqa. While there were a large number of surrounding buildings crumbling to the ground around Sean, there were several buildings that had undetonated bombs inside of them.

Tough Times

It didn’t matter if he was actively patrolling or not, life in the army wasn’t a walk in the part for Sean. Well, for anyone. There was rarely anything exciting going on in the camp, and the troop’s morale was definitely suffering because of it. So in February, Sean almost felt grateful for being called out to investigate a bombed-out school.

Strange Sounds

Sean couldn’t find anything out of the ordinary while he was patrolling the area. But when he really tuned into his surroundings, he thought that he could hear the sound of a faint whimper somewhere underneath all of the rubble. Sean began to follow the noise and soon started digging.

Too Skittish

The sound that he was hearing was coming from a puppy! The puppy, which looked like some kind of Asian shepherd mix, immediately backed away from Sean when he attempted to reach out. Without thinking twice, Sean realized that he had to do something to help the scared canine, but then he saw something that made him jerk back.
