Feel-Good Story: Marine Reunited With “Nubs”

SAN DIEGO — A San Diego-based Marine major was reunited on Saturday with one of his closest war buddies — a 2-year-old dog named Nubs.

Nubs greeted Maj. Brian Dennis at Miramar Marine Corps Air Station when the fighter pilot returned from Iraq.

It was the first time the two were together since Dennis’ family and close friends helped raise $3,500 to fly the dog to San Diego about a month ago. Nubs wasn’t allowed to stay on base in Iraq.

Dennis, 36, of St. Pete Beach, Fla., had spotted the mongrel dog while on patrol in Anbar province and later nursed the animal back to health after finding him stabbed with a screwdriver.

He named the dog Nubs after learning someone cut the ears off believing it would make the dog more aggressive and alert.

  1. Thanks for sharing this heart-warming story.


  2. My pleasure. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I think this is one the few great war stories that should be recognized. When you think of war usually violence, death, and bombs come to mind but never would you have thought of an amazing story like Nubs. Personally, i love animals, dogs to be more specific and it’s great what this family did for this dog. More stories like this should be reported.

  4. I’m glad you enjoyed it.
