When U.S. Marine Jared Heine was injured in Afghanistan, suffering traumatic brain injuries, he was sent home to Louisiana, where he continued to struggle. His mother noticed that Jared talked a lot about how much he missed Spike, the bomb-sniffing dog who was his partner in the war zone.
“It just hit me if I could find Spike it would make a huge difference in his life,” said Mary Heine.
Eager to help, she went online — and with the help of friends on Facebook she found Spike in Virginia.
But there was just one problem. . .
This is a wonderful story of love and sacrifice, involving two brave humans and one beautiful dog.
