Dog Hero Receives Stem-Cell Treatment

Lex, wounded, stayed with Cpl. Dustin Jerome Lee after they were hit from a rocket-propelled grenade March 21, 2007. Later Lex was allowed to live with Lee’s family in Mississippi.

About daysofourdogs

I have owned dogs nearly all my life. Many different breeds, mutts, rescues, and foundlings have found their ways into my heart. I have two dachshunds and a miniature schnauzer now. I hate puppy mills and want them wiped from the face of the earth.
