GOAL MET! Now funds for his siblings!
My name is Staff Sergeant Andrew Wahl. I have served honorably for 8 years in the United States Army and I am currently deployed to Afghanistan. This is my second time being deployed to Afghanistan, my first was from 2007-2008. While here the first time I developed a passion for the Sagee Koochee dog breed and made it a goal of mine to some day bring one back home with me if I ever went back. Now almost 5 years since I first came to Afghanistan I have the Oportunity to rescue THOR. Thor is a young male puppy that lost his mother shortly after he was born and in a country that has no love for pets has found a safe haven with the Nowzad Dog Rescue. Working with a woman named Louise it is now my intention to rescue him and fulfill my goal. When Thor makes it to the states he will have 7 acres to call home, 2 little boys, a little girl, and another dog to play with. He will get to experience something most dogs in Afghanistan never will... FAMILY! I can not explain why it means so much to me to do this, but failure is not an option. The financial burdens are heavy, and it is a long process that involves the Thor travelling from Afghanistan to Europe and finally to the United states. There will be shots and quarentines along the way and the money raised will cover his vaccines, food, lodging, and transportation along his way. Thor needs to come home with me! He represents a beautiful part of the Afghan culture and I want my family to enjoy with me the one part of Afghanistan that always made me happy. It doesn't take much, just a dollar here or there to make my dreams come true. Thank you to all those who choose to give. No good deed goes unnoticed!
so hope you get enough money
Love comes in many sizes....and strength in many forms. God Bless you and your friends for the love and compassion you show each of us by serving our country. Welcome home Thor.
I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has donated, Andy has been a brother to me for the past 8 years and it makes me so grateful he gets to bring Thor home. Now lets see if we can make two other soldiers get to bring home their new friends.
I so happy thor and family will have a happy life, I have 6 dogs and of 4 they were throw away dogs, 3 cats one left in a box in a very hot day and I opened to my surprise a baby2 week old cat....love our pet family they always with use in high and lows, they don't if your fat or have 2 heads they just love you.
So many loyal canines were abandoned in Viet Nam when that war ended, and that has always make my heart break. Bless you many times over for thinking of your furry friend!
Congratulations, Andrew! Now you need to start a blog so we can stay updated on Thor!

I am with you on that one, and will tell anyone who will listen about your story. Thank you for not only being a soldier but a compassionate one at that! I cannot wait to see you and Thor reunited in Feb. Good luck!
