Military dogs are crucial as they help sniff out bombs and landmines that would otherwise go unnoticed by soldiers. A yellow lab named “Tay-Tay” has been so successful in ensuring the safety of soldiers that the Taliban actually had a bounty on her head.
Now retired, she is ready to get adopted as a service dog. One woman, Molli, wanted to reunite Tay-Tay with a military vet, Sgt. Tom Hanson, that spent a lot of time with her during her service. He helped protect her and as any great service dog would do, she returned the favor.
Molli works as a flight attendant but her other passion is to reunite retired service dogs with soldiers who spent time with these dogs while on deployment. When Tay-Tay the service dog is finally reunited with Hanson, it will bring a tear to your eye.
