SEATAC, Wash. (AP) — A Washington state sheriff’s deputy has been reunited with the bomb-sniffing dog he served with six years ago in Afghanistan.

An excited Mike Lamon hugged the retired war dog, Adam, at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport Friday and brought him home.

The two worked side by side for nine months while working on a bomb team that oversaw entry and exit points for vehicles and people in Afghanistan.

KING-TV reports (http://goo.gl/x6B7Gd ) that after serving overseas, Lamon returned to Wenatchee, where he is currently a Chelan County sheriff’s deputy.

Meanwhile, the Belgian Malinois continued to serve for another six years before the dog retired last week.

The reunion was made possible by Mission K9 Rescue and a $150,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to the U.S. War Dogs Association.
