This is Gross, we found her two weeks into an operation in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. She was covered in fleas and mange and after a few baths (in a local's well) and a few Marines pulling more than a few ticks off her back she was happy as a clam. She was with us for five months as our operation progressed and as time went on she grew bigger and accompanied us on most of our patrols. She was a loyal companion and a great friend to have 7000 miles away from home. After some of the comments I've received I decided to justify her name. "Gross" was given the name after she stumbled into an Afghani house we were holed up at around 1 am. After we found an enormous amount of parasites covering most of her body, one of my comrades-in-arms stated. "SHES GROSS" The name stuck. She is not an American Service Dog, but rather an Afghani Puppy we raised on our own. She never came home with us and the last we heard of her she was sluggin' it out along side the Prince Wales Regiment (U.K.) in Southern Helmand.

What a sweet girl. How great that you guys had such a wonderful little pup to love while in the midst of a horror that I can only imagine. I'm glad you all had each other and pray that you have all found your way home - safely.

I don't think anyone has read how she got the name :D Haha. I think she has a very soulful story, it totally sticks with her! I got a little confused at the end, so she does not live with you and your other dog? Wherever she even is, she is just adorable. I love her breed! Those markings are amazing! ~xoxo, Cass and Lua :)

Beautiful puppy!

What an absolute darling! I do apologize for the ridiculous comments of others, which (as Moderator) I have now removed! Gross is lovely and I'm sure the Prince of Wales Regiment is enjoying her companionship now. God bless you all! Hugs from Oliver & Henry, and their Mum, in London, Ontario, Canada.

Gross is just too cute! (: I love how she got her name! I'm sure it was amazing to have her around, while in Afghanistan. The Prince Wales Regiment probably loves her! - Licks & Wags from the Aussies.
