Nubs, an Iraqi dog of war, never had a home or a person of his own. But his life changes when he meets Marine Major Brian Dennis. The two form a fast friendship, made stronger by Brian’s willingness to share his meals, offer a warm place to sleep, and give Nubs the kind of care and attention he’s never received before. Nubs becomes part of Dennis's human "pack" until duty requires the Marines to relocate a full 70 miles away--without him.
So Nubs sets out through the freezing desert to find his friend. Two days later, Nubs walks into the camp. But because Marine regulations prohibit the keeping of pets in a war zone, Brian and his men collect donations and arrange to send Nubs to live with friends in the United States, where they eventually reunite in 2008.
"This is a wonderful story of the mutual devotion and the warm bond found between people and their pets... with a twist. My 7 year old son, as soon as we finished, said it best: ‘Dad, that was a great story!’"
