A lucky stray dog has made his way from Afghanistan all the way to the United States, thanks to a successful GoFundMe campaign.
Back in Afghanistan, Arty was a regular visitor to a U.S. Army camp. He’d hang around, providing Army personnel with comfort and cuddles.
In exchange, Arty just wanted a little bit of food – and a little bit of attention.
When the group looking after Arty was preparing to leave Afghanistan, they wanted to make sure he’d be OK. So, they set up an online campaign to raise money to get Arty to America.
They ended up raising thousands of dollars, which got Arty safely to his new home in Austin, Texas, where he is walking on green grass for the first time in his life.
