In western Iraq there was a group of wild dogs that survived off the land. The leader of the pack was a thin dog who had its ears cut off. One day, Major Brian Dennis and his team showed up to help train the Iraqi soldiers. Brian and the dog with its ears cut off, who he later named Nubs, bonded right away. Nubs and Brain shared dinenr together that night and Nubs kept Brian company when it was his turn on guard duty. The next day, the Marines hoped in their Humvees to drive off and the group of wild dogs chased after them. Most the dogs gave up, but Nubs continued to chase after the Humvees not knowing that Marines were not allowed to have pets. Brian came back to the fort several times and was greeted by Nubs each time. On one visit, when he was leaving Nubs chased the Humvee for as long as he could before his body gave out. When Nubs stood back up, rather than returning to the fort, he began walking in the direction that the Humvees went. Nubs walked 70 miles to the Iraqi Battalion headquarters where Brian was stationed. Nubs happily ran into Brian's arms. The Marines built Nubs a dog house, fed him, and even made him his own collar. Brian was given four days to get rid of the dog "or else" because dogs were not allowed at the outpost. The Marines raised enough money to transport Nubs to America. Nubs and Brian now live together in San Diego.

A heartwarming story about a marine and a stray dog that formed an unlikely friendship in the middle of a war. This story chronicles the life of the dog in Iraq, the rough journey he made to be reunited with his friend, and his transition to a comfortable life in San Diego. ( )

Kids will love this story about an abandoned dog's fierce loyalty to a Marine major and Nubs' subsequent rescue from the harsh desert life of Iraq. Illustrated with color photographs that include heartwarming shots of man and dog together. Co-written by Kirby Larson, author of the terrific "Hattie Big Sky." ( )

A sweet little story of love, loyalty and devotion between a dog and a soldier in war-torn Iraq. It was heart-breaking to see the hardships Nubs went through, but I admired the kindness the author showed to a homeless, scruffy dog. Loved the photos of Nubs that were scattered through this book. ( )

B All animal lovers will enjoy this story. Nubs is a wild dog that follows a marine from Iraq to Jordan in the middle of a war. Due to the fact that soldiers are not allowed to have animals Brian, the marine that takes care of Nubs, sends Nubs to live in the United States with his family. This nonfiction story depicts the loyality of dogs and the relationship that develops between people and dogs.
