Nubs - The True Story of a Mutt, a Marine, and a Miracle
St. Petersburg Engagement Session with dogs | Caroline & Evan Photography and Nubbs the Dog
He does….but Mama Nubbs and Papa Nubbs are not responsible enough to care for a puppy. We know our limits. We also do not have a fenced yard – I know that could be fixed easily, but I do not have the energy for a dog these days….unless said dog is a basset hound, and then I will likely need to find a new Papa Nubbs as I am not allowed to bring one home.
Major Brian Dennis discovered a dog that had been severely abused on his rounds in Iraq. Someone had cut off his ears, and stabbed him with a screwdriver. The dog, he named “Nubbs” seemed to be on deaths doorstep. That night Major Brian Dennis gave him his rations of food, and slept with him in a sleeping bag to try to keep him warm. The next few days Nubbs began to recover under the care of Major Dennis. But before Nubbs could completely recover from his wounds, Dennis was informed he must relocate 70 miles away. The military would not allow Dennis to take Nubbs, and he relocated as instructed with a heavy heart, leaving Nubbs behind. Amazingly, Nubbs tracked him down by walking 70 miles in the harsh desert. When the Major’s so called superiors found out, they advised Dennis he needs to get rid of the dog within four days, or they would shoot Nubbs. After all Nubbs had gone through, Major Dennis could not allow that to happen, and was able to successfully arrange to have Nubb’s sent back to the US.
