National Guard Soldiers Refuse To Leave Stray Dog And Her Puppies Behind

This is a wonderful story of a group of American soldiers banding together to help a homeless family of dogs, who needed their help. In 2013, Sgt. Edwin Caba and his fellow soldiers were serving in a remote base in Afghanistan when a stray dog wandered into their camp.

Caba immediately bonded with the female dog and he named her Sheba. She soon became a beloved friend and mascot to the soldiers. She would bravely chase away other strays from the men when they were on patrol and waited every night for their safe return.

After she got pregnant and gave birth, the men looked after Sheba when she fell ill. They gave Sheba some of their rations and food sent from home and they took care of her puppies as if they were their own.

As the puppies grew, the soldiers grew closer to the dogs. Knowing that the dogs would likely die if they were left to fend for themselves, the soldiers wanted to bring them home. That’s when Operation Puppy Rescue began.

You’ll want to watch the video below for the rest of this fantastic story. It has a very happy ending for Sheba and Cadence, Rocky, Sarah, Jack, Buckeye, Breezy and Harris and the National Guard soldiers who looked after them!
