In April, Ken Wyrsch was working as an American Army Specialist in Iraq, assisting Kurdish forces. Every time they would go out on mission to fight, they at least knew there was someone waiting for them to get back.
That's why when the soldier found out that his unit was being disbanded and sent home, he knew he couldn't leave without the adorable canine. He was terrified that something would happen to him in the dangerous region.He reached out to SPCA Internationalwho organized the dog's transfer and managed to fly him halfway around the world.
Ollie arrived at San Francisco International Airport on May 18, and his best buddy was waiting there for him.Their reunion was heartwarming, with the pooch so obviously happy to be back with his soldier.
