Corporal Leavey to be reunited with service dog Rex!
2012-03-16

Please help Corporal Leavey reunite with her military working dog, Rex!

**UPDATE** See Below!

From Senator Schumerís website: Senator Schumer is calling on the U.S. Air Force to reunite Sergeant Rex, an extraordinary military working dog, with his former partner, Iraq War veteran, Corporal Megan Leavey, USMC. Megan Leavey worked with Sergeant Rex to hunt down and disarm improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in Iraq to keep American soldiers safe. Both were injured in an IED blast in 2006, and the pair spent the next year recovering together from their injuries. Leavey has yet to be approved for her adoption request and is still working through the military bureaucracy to finalize the adoption.

Sign the petition now if you agree with Senator Schumer that these two American heroes should be reunited with all due speed.
