Conan, the heroic dog who helped chase down ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi wasn’t the only canine forever changed by the U.S. operation in Syria last weekend.
Meet “Bobe,” a puppy that was orphaned in the firefight.
He was all alone, but thanks to a Syrian photojournalist, he has a new family.
Fared Alhor was photographing the remains of Baghdadi’s compound the morning after the raid when he heard something crying: a tiny dust-covered puppy next to the body of its mother.
At first, Alhor brought Bobe to a friend’s house whose dog just had a litter of puppies.
But, he couldn’t say goodbye to the puppy whose life he had saved.
Instead, he brought the pooch to his own home.
Alhor said it broke his heart to think about leaving the puppy behind.
He says he is dedicated to caring for him.
