When Charity Webb, a 29-year-old Army Sergeant, was working as a cook in Europe, she had an endearing encounter with a stray dog. The pooch had been wandering around the army base and eventually gave birth to a litter of cute puppies. However, one of these puppies seemed to be very shy around the soldiers. Nevertheless, Webb formed an instant connection with the timid puppy who surprisingly warmed up to her. Despite the other soldiers’ attempts, Webb was the only one who could hold the puppy without causing her to cry or become upset. The bond between them was evident, and Webb’s fondness for the little canine grew stronger with time.
During her time serving in Europe, Webb took it upon herself to befriend a stray dog that she encountered. She put in a lot of effort to earn the dog’s trust and show her that the soldiers were there to help, not hurt. Unfortunately, some people had malicious intentions towards the dog and wanted to cause her harm. To protect her furry friend, Webb had to keep her hidden from the dog catchers who had a reputation for killing strays. As time went by, Webb and the dog, affectionately called Pup Pup, formed a deep and meaningful bond that could not be broken. As her deployment drew to a close, Webb began to worry about Pup Pup’s wellbeing and the possibility of her getting euthanized in her absence.
Once, she stumbled upon Paws of War, a benevolent group that assists soldiers in reuniting with their beloved pets they looked after while serving overseas. The organization functions solely on contributions and had to wait until they raised enough money to fly the pup back to America, a pricey expense averaging $7,000. An article about Pup Pup featured in NY Post proved to be a game-changer as it generated generous donations for Paws of War, allowing them to bring Pup Pup home and rescue another furry friend in need!
After being apart for quite some time, Webb and Pup Pup were finally reunited in a heartfelt moment that moved them deeply.
As soon as the vehicle halted, Pup Pup could not wait to hop out and show her new forever mom how thrilled she was by rolling on her back with a wagging tail.
Watch their heartwarming reunion as shown in the accompanying video.
