It was in 2014 when Marine Sergeant Jacob Fisher found himself deployed in Afghanistan for the third time. He was going through his usual daily routine when he chanced upon a tiny brown puppy. Seeing that the fur ball’s owner was nowhere in sight, he decided to bring it back to camp.
It didn’t take long for Fisher’s colleagues to develop a certain liking towards the pup. When it had been staying with them for days, and no once came looking for him, they decided to take him in. Fisher eventually decided to call the pup “Jax.”
Jax and Fisher
The Marine and the brown fluff ball soon developed a deep friendship. Fisher would spend whatever free time he had in a day with the pup. He would feed him, bathe him, and play with him. He wanted to make sure that the tiny pooch understood how much he loved him.
Jax understood, of course. He didn’t have the ability to verbally communicate his feelings, so he showed it through his actions. He would wag his tail whenever he would see Fisher, and he would give him wet kisses and warm hugs whenever he had the chance.
When the time finally came for Fisher to return home, he sought the help of SPCA International to transport his four-legged best friend to the United States. This was granted through the military support program. The logistics required to make it possible was tricky, but they understood where Fisher was coming from and they were determined to help him.
Worth the wait
It took a little over two months for Jax to arrive in America. Fisher was over the moon when he learned about this, so he immediately arranged for his family to be present at the airport upon the pooch’s arrival. At first, he was worried that the Jax wouldn’t recognize him since they’ve been apart for a long time. His concerns ceased when he saw the pooch wagging his tail non-stop upon seeing him (see below)!
