(sign petition)A woman who served in Iraq for more than three years is now fighting to adopt the German Shepherd who she survived a roadside bomb with.As a dog handler for the military, Megan Leavey, 28, completed over 100 missions during two six-month tours in Iraq with the military service dog Rex. And since being discharged  from the military in December 2007 Leavey has campaigned to adopt the bomb-sniffing canine so he can enjoy a civilian life with her in Rockport, New York.

'Rex is my partner; I love him,' Leavey told Msnbc.com 'We have been through so much together … I’ve spent day and night with this dog. It’s a very strong bond.'

Indeed Leavey and Rex, who she handled since her earliest days as a Marine at Camp Pendleton, California, survived the blast of a roadside bomb in Ramadi in 2006, which took them both out of service.
