Nubs, a dog born in Iraq, met Major Brian Dennis 2007 and they immediately formed a strong bond. Dennis said there were quite a few stray dogs in the area who were used by the Iraqis as guard dogs around the border. Nubs was one of the dogs, however, when Dennis was transferred to a new fort 75 miles away, he had to say goodbye to Nubs.
A few days later, Dennis was told that there was someone outside to see him, and when he got outside, Nubs was there! Marines were not allowed to have pets, but they built a doghouse for Nubs. When a commanding officer said no, Dennis knew he could not say goodbye again and raised the money to have Nubs shipped back to the United States.
Dennis wrote a book about his adventures with Nubs!
