About Kirby & Princess
Marine Capt. Jamisen Fox’s Turkish sheepdog pups: Kirby & Princess are two of a litter of seven puppies that were transported from Iraq to the United States. “Operation Cookie Jar” got the pups to the USA
and the Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS) brought them out to California where they have been housed and cared for, including medical attention, for approximately a month until the Marine owners return from deployment in Iraq. RCHS has covered all the expenses associated with bringing the puppies from Iraq to San Diego, CA and their care in the U.S.
The puppy’s parents were stray dogs hanging around the Marine’s camp in Iraq and the soldiers started feeding and caring for them. The dogs became camp watchdogs and had a litter of puppies which were adopted by the Marines, who cared for the pups, started training them and sent them home to America. These socialized pups are only four months old and have inherited some of the parent’s protective traits. (They are not available for adoption).
