Grab the tissues, this one’s a doozy.

1. Staff Sgt. Kevin Brady met Bailey serving overseas in Afghanistan. They became good friends. But when he went stateside he had to say goodbye.

 

2. Bailey was given to him by Afghan soldiers but he was heartbroken when he couldn’t bring her home with him. That is until Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue and Guardians of Rescue got involved.

3. The two organizations worked together to raise over $5,000 to ship Bailey from Dubai to New York.

4. This is a much bigger Bailey touching U.S. soil for the first time.

5. Then Save-A-Pet organized a big event for Sgt. Brady to see his buddy again.

 

6. But would Bailey remember Kevin?

7. Yeah, you could say she missed him a little bit…

8. Best buds reunited!

 

9. According to the Guardians Of Rescue Facebook page, after meeting up in New York, the two hit the road to bring Bailey home to California.

10. Dori Scofield, vice president and founder of Save-A-Pet, said the least they can do for veterans coming home is “get their war buddy home.”
