Talk about heart break! When First Lt. Brandon Harker returned from Afghanistan, he discovered the friend who was taking care of his dog had given him away and couldn't "remember" who he gave the dog to.

Harker posted a picture of him with his dog to Craigslist in hopes of getting him back.
On July 24, he posted a statement that read in part:

"I am just trying to get him back to me since he was wrongfully given away or sold with out my permission while I was deployed. I will also be able to verify the dog is mine because he is micro-chipped and registered to me."

Harker told KING 5 news in Seattle he has "no idea" why his friend gave away his dog.
Dogs on Deployment, a Facebook group is also trying to help Harker find his dog. Anyone who thinks they may know who has Harker's dog is asked to contact him via his Craigslist post.
