Army Specialist Vance McFarland learned that his former Tactical Explosive Detection Dog, Ikar, had been abandoned. It’d been three years since they had last seen each other, and a reunion was underway thanks to Mission Canine Rescue and the U.S. War Dogs Association for stepping in to get these dogs back with their rightful humans.
“I hope he remembers me,” McFarland said as he stood in the airport awaiting the dog’s arrival. And boy would the dog ever! As soon as Ikar sees his former battle buddy, he’s off and running into his arms. What a sweet scene! These two have meant so much to each other for so long, it’s only right they’re back together.
