War dog finds new home


MINNESOTA (KWWL) -- An Iraqi vet in Minnesota is looking to get her pup trained.

Ratchet, the Border Collie mix made international headlines when specialist Gwen Beberg tried to get her adopted puppy out of Iraq.

While serving, Gwen pulled Rachet out of a burning pile of trash.

A few months ago "Operation Baghdad Pups" cut through the military red tape and flew him to Minneapolis.

Now Ratchet works with a trainer who is helping him transition from a war zone to a Minnesota winter.
