Iraq War veteran reunited with K-9 partner in Indiana

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

An Iraq war veteran from Bloomfield, Indiana has finally been reunited with his K-9 partner. Dozens of people lined the streets to welcome home the town's newest war hero.

Former Air Force K-9 handler Sgt. Harvey Holt said he made a promise. If he and Jjackson made it out alive, he would adopt the pooch.

The process took several years, a lot of paperwork and help from the community. But Holt was finally able to give his canine buddy a home for life.

"When I first saw him coming out of the kennels I didn't even recognize him," Tech. Sgt. Harvey Holt said. "He was a young pup when I gave him up and he's an old chunky man now."

The dog is a little banged up and will need surgery. But Holt said he's certain they will make it through - together.
