Achille's Soldier Savior says:


When I first saw Achilles he was laying down in the corner of a compound that was vacant, once we came into the compound he preceded to run towards me and began to bark.
I knew right then and there that this dog had heart and I wanted to do whatever I could to rescue him. He and his brother were both dirty and malnourished, and were definitely in some need of help; my local national friends pointed out that Achilles brother had cut ears which meant he was breed to be a fighting dogs.
We decided that we would take them back home to our base and take care of them by provided them a warm place to sleep and food to eat.
Once we brought them both back we all began to fall in love with the two of them, I grew very fond of Achilles and spent all the free time I had with him. Wherever I was he was always by my side, whether it was at briefings or in the gym, he was always there next to me.
I did some research and decided that I would ask for assistance in trying to take Achilles home with me and provide him a better home that he deserves. I found the charity program Nowzad and contacted them in order to see if they could help, I am now working with them currently to raise money in order to get Achilles to America to live with me and my family.
