From WKRC Cincinnati Local 12: LOS ANGELES, Cali. (WKRC) -- When a US Marine served in Afghanistan, he put his life on the line to save others on a daily basis.
And while he had to be tough on the front lines, he also found a soft spot in his heart for man's best friend.
Sergeant Jacob Fisher was on his third tour to the Middle East, when a puppy found its way onto his base.
He knew he couldn't leave the pup to fend for himself, so he had to save one more life before going home.
Sergeant Fisher, and Jax, became very close, but Fisher's seven-month deployment ended, and he headed back stateside, without Jax.
However, three months later, he had another opportunity to save Jax's life, by giving him a forever home.
Pawsitive Channel and the SPCA’s international's program Opreration Baghdad Pups: Worldwide teamed up to bring the two together.
They had cameras rolling as Jax and Fisher were finally reunited at LAX last month.
