Veteran adopts dog he served with in AfghanistanFebruary 5, 2019
By The Associated Press
CULVER — An Indiana veteran who adopted the bomb-sniffing dog he served with in Afghanistan says the now 11-year-old canine is settling in for a pampered life in retirement.
Army veteran Joseph Steenbeke had not seen Tess since February 2013 during his return home from Afghanistan. He’d spent years trying to adopt the Belgian Malinois.
Steenbeke and his wife, Stephanie, returned home Saturday night after picking Tess up in Newtown, Connecticut, where she had served with the Connecticut National Guard until her retirement last week.
The playful canine is now getting used to her new home in the northern Indiana town of Culver.
Steenbeke tells the South Bend Tribune that Tess “worked so hard her entire life now she gets to sit back and have fun and live like an eccentric billionaire.”
