Sandy Paws

Meet Sandy Paws, Paws for short:

“I had only been in Kuwait for a short time when I spotted “Sandy Paws” on the side of the highway, during one of my patrols. When I saw her, I knew I had to pick her up, get her to some sort of shelter and get her fed. God sometimes leads us down a road for a certain reason. If I would have gone a different route, been looking the other direction, or possibly not here at all Sandy Paws could have wandered into the road and been struck by a vehicle. As far as we can figure, she is about 6 weeks old. She did not know how to eat or drink very well without assistance, as she was alone and without a mother. Me, along with some other guys built her a shelter to stay in and have been feeding her and checking on her daily. This puppy has stolen my heart. I have always been a dog lover and they have a special place in my heart. Other than leaving my daughter and wife, leaving our dog Remington was one of the hardest parts of leaving for this deployment. Our dog Remington was “our first child”. So leaving him was difficult. When I told my wife about wanting to rescue Sandy Paws, she said, “I knew it wouldn’t take you long to find a dog to love.” I look forward to seeing Sandy Paws everyday and making sure she is safe. Being away from your family and dog at home is hard, but Sandy Paws has brightened each day since I found her. She is sweet, playful and excited to see every person who has been helping take care of her. I would like to bring this sweet girl home to be a part of our family and make sure she is given the best doggy life possible. It’s sad to see how many stray dogs there are here and how they are treated. I want to do my part and help save Sandy Paws.”
