U.S. Army Sgt. Macintire rescued a stranded puppy while on deployment in the Middle East; he's working with N.Y.-based nonprofit Paws of War to get her home to Utah.
"They all knew how much the dog meant to Sgt. Macintire." CJ has full clearance to fly to the U.S. once full funding is collected for her trip. "We do everything we can to never let that soldier down or let that dog down." Angelica Stabile is a lifestyle writer for Fox News Digital. Follow her on Twitter at @atstabile.
Robert Misseri, co-founder of the Long Island, N.Y.-based Paws of War, told Fox News Digital that the pup's rescue mission needs more funding before all steps can be completed. The group also divulged just how close to death this puppy had been.
