HIGHLAND VILLAGE, Texas (UPI) -- The Texas parents of a U.S. soldier serving in Afghanistan said a puppy their daughter rescued in the country is adjusting to life in the United States.

Steve Rodems of Highland Village, stepfather of Army Reserves Staff Sgt. Hannah Schlegel, said his stepdaughter rescued Wylie, an Afghan hound-shepherd mix that is now 10-months-old, from a small guard shack in eastern Afghanistan in December 2009, The Dallas Morning News reported.

He said friends, family and strangers donated to Schlegel's online PayPal fundraising campaign for the dog and she was able to gather the $4,000 needed to send Wylie to Texas.

"It says a lot about people that even with everything going on at home, a simple story about a girl and her dog can still melt everyone's heart," Schlegel said in an e-mail. "But it's not just my story anymore; it's the story of everyone who has donated to help bring her home."

Schlegel, whose deployment is scheduled to end in late August or early September, said Wylie will eventually come home with her and her fiance to Northern Virginia.
