Dog rescued by soldier makes it to U.S.

UPI News Service, 06/25/2010 

A dog rescued by a U.S. soldier in Afghanistan is adjusting to his new Connecticut home after the Army ordered the soldier to get rid of the mutt.

Brian Wakefield of Clinton said his brother, Adam, rescued 6-month-old mutt Mo in Afghanistan and raised $3,500 in less than 24 hours via a Web site, Operation SentMoHome, to get Mo through the quarantine and vaccination process required to ship him back to the United States, The Hartford (Conn.) Courant reported Friday.

Brian Wakefield said Mo arrived Tuesday at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport.

"The Customs guy was giving me a hard time, He was wondering why I spent so much money on the dog," Wakefield said. "Coming from Afghanistan, he was wondering if I was a breeder or something like that. No, he's a mutt."

He said Mo and Adam, whose tour is scheduled to end in December, will be reunited in August when the soldier is scheduled for leave to attend his brother's wedding.
