January 2018 saw us receive a desperate request from a contractor in Baghdad about a dog he had been caring for who had a nasty wound on his leg. Socks had been living on the streets of Baghdad near to the US Embassy and was still very nervous but after a massive effort we managed to get him transported to the kennels in Northern Iraq. He was soon transported to Jordan where he underwent surgery on his injured leg only for us to discover fragments of a bullet in his leg. Socks made a full recovery and went to the USA where he was rehomed.
