ENON, Ohio (WDTN) - Students at Hustead School in Clark County were excited to hear what Starline Nunley had to say and maybe even more excited to see her dog Tushpa on Thursday.

Tushpa is not trained for military missions, but Nunley, who's son is a soldier, wants people to know that there are dogs who are saving soldiers' lives in places like Iraq and Afghanistan and they need help.

The dogs sniff for bombs and perform search and rescue missions and provide therapy for the soldiers.

The dogs are protected with vests that keep their core body temperature below 103 degrees; doggles that protect their eyes from sand and shrapnel; and paw protectors.

If you would like to help military dogs you can do so by using Nunley's web site,
