“Stolen” War Dog
Story Ends Happily!
It was when Fox News did a live interview with Brent Grommet’s father last Thursday night, that everything seemed to turn in Brent and Matty’s favor. North Carolina congressman, Richard Hudson, who had heard about the story earlier in the week, helped to find the dog in South Carolina.
On Friday, Brent and his parents, Don and Debbie Grommet, drove 17 hours from Fort Campbell, Kentucky, to South Carolina, where Matty had been living since 2013. When Brent got out of the car, he walked toward the kennel where Matty was, wondering if the dog would remember him.
Of course Matty did.
When the kennel door was opened the dog ran as fast as he could to Brent, who had called his name. He said, “Matty jumped all over me and about tackled me to the ground . . . I couldn’t have asked for a better response. I knew then that he remembered me, and truly wanted to be with me!”
Brent gets out of the army in two months, but is trying to arrange it so Matty can live with him on base at Fort Campbell, until his army service ends.
The stolen war dog story is nearly over—happily!
