When This Marine Needed A Friend, His Puppy Was There. Now Watch Them Reunite!

When Sergeant Jacob Fisher was on a seven-month deployment inBagram, Afghanistan, in 2015, he never expected that by the time it was over, he would bring home a dog.

But while the active-duty Marine was fighting for his country overseas, he found his best friend in the process.After getting called about a creature caught inside an animal trap on his base, he found a tiny puppy inside and took him in.It only took a week for him to decide that the little guy, who he named Jax, would be coming back to the U.S. with him.

Fisher was in the United States Marine Corps for almost 11 years when he completed his third tour to the Middle East.
