In case you have never heard of The Puppy Rescue Mission, the organization was originally founded to rescue a little dog named Bear from the battlefields of Afghanistan. Now three years later and 400 rescues, Anna and her fiance Chris who live in Maine with Bear continue to save these little "battle buddies" by fundraising and assisting organizations to help soldiers bring their furry companions home from the war.
On Saturday, Norm, a soldier scheduled to return to the U.S. the second week in April introduced the rescue world to Torch, a tiny little puppy who was originally found with bare patches on his body. Soldiers think that the puppy may have been trying to stay warm, but fell asleep too close to the burn pit. Nevertheless, his "adopted" human nursed him back to health using an eyedropper to feed him baby formula.
Torch has recuperated, and since then a new story spread through The Puppy Rescue Mission's Facebook page about this adorable little canine friend:
"Soldier has told us more about this little Warrior.
I forgot to tell you part of the story of Torch. There was a burning building full of Afghan children that he ran into and pull the kids out to safety. That's really where the name Torch came from."
