Megan Leavey and Rex served together in Iraq, where they both were disabled by an IED (Improvised Explosive Device). Megan has left the service in 2007 with a Purple Heart and has been trying to adopt Rex since then. Since Rex was too valuable as a working dog, her requests were denied.
Recently Rex has been diagnosed with nerve paralysis, which leaves him unable to serve. Pets For Patriots is helping to spread the word and create awareness so that the military will allow Megan to adopt Rex and then she'll be able to take care of him for the rest of his life.
You can read all about it here , then please spread the word!
Word of mouth is a powerful thing and mom believes that the blogging community, especially the anipal community, can work wonders! Please share Megan's story with anyone that you think may be able to help.
Always a little late but glad we made it to the hop!
