This is the story of plucky and courageous Iraqi dog who befriends a group of Marines, namely Major Brian Dennis. This dog demonstrates such fierce loyalty and courageous, that you immediately become invested in his welfare and survival. Nubs the dog, an adopted pet by a band of U.S. Marines, shows why these military men could not give up on him: "Nubs trekked mile after treacherous mile across the desert, shivering through frozen days and nights. There was little to eat and even less to drink. With barely a moment's rest, Nubs pushed on, fighting his way through territories fiercely protected by wolves and wild dogs." I will not tell you why Nubs began walking miles, or how it turned out because one must read this beautiful true story in order to appreciate the humble and loving qualities of man's best friend. This book is highly recommended for dog lovers, and for students grades 2-4, and for students looking for a quality biography.
