Marine Reunited with Military Dog after Years!

A story to pull on your heart strings.

For many years Spike, a member of the K-9 patrol, spent his time protecting U.S. Marine Jared Heine and his troop in Afghanistan until Heine was sent home to Louisiana after a series of brain injuries. The pair were split up and Heine began to struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder. Spike was mentioned in many conversations with Heines mother Mary so she began the search to track down Spike!

Mary managed to find Spike but there was a big problem – Spike was now working with Officer Laura Taylor and they had been inseparable for the past couple of years…. What Officer Taylor does next is heart warming.
