Fred is a street puppy from Sangin District in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. Despite being from one of the harshest surroundings in the world, he managed to maintain a positive attitude.
Craig was a member of an upper-class squad of Marines. Sangin was his most dangerous assignment , not the place he thought he would satisfy his first dog, but with some proper scheming and a lot of assist, Craig was able to send Fred home to his family while he completed his tour.
After Afghanistan, Craig left the Marines in search of a new mission- to share his tale and his adventures with Fred, and the message of “stubborn positivity ” that Fred inspired. His first book, Craig& Fred: A Marine, A Stray Dog, and How they Rescued Each Other.
