Product Description

Nubs, an Iraqi dog of war, never had a home or a person of his own. He was the leader of a pack of wild dogs living off the land and barely surviving. But Nubs' life changed when he met Marine Major Brian Dennis. The two formed a fast friendship, made stronger by Dennis's willingness to share his meals, offer a warm place to sleep, and give Nubs the kind of care and attention he had never received before. Nubs became part of Dennis's human "pack" until duty required the Marines to relocate a full 70 miles away--without him. Nubs had no way of knowing that Marines were not allowed to have pets. So began an incredible journey that would take Nubs through a freezing desert, filled with danger to find his friend and would lead Dennis on a mission that would touch the hearts of people all over the world. Nubs and Dennis will remind readers that friendship has the power to cross deserts, continents, and even species.

    Nubs was a wild dog in Iraq that found Major Brian Dennis, and found a life long friend. After Nubs followed Dennis 70 miles to another post, Dennis began making moves to keep him. When military rules prevented Dennis from keeping him on base, Dennis began the process to bring him to the States. Now, Nubs lives with Dennis in California.

    This is a great, heart-tugging story. Everyone will love reading about this determined, loyal dog that makes an incredible journey. This book is in my elementary school library, and every time a student returns it, they declare it a wonderful story. The reading level is probably higher second grade, but the story is easily understood by all.
