A veteran who rescued a puppy from overseas is pleading for help after a paperwork mix-up means the dog could be sent back to Jordan where her fate remains unknown. Harley landed at JFK Airport on Aug. 24 and is considered a service dog for emotional support to deal with the effect of war. The 1-year-old dog’s entry was denied by authorities at JFK who cited invalid vaccination paperwork when she arrived. Officials say the invalid paperwork was only the result of a minor mistake which has since been corrected in an appeal by Paws of War, a Long Island-based organization that matches rescue dogs with veterans. Now the organization working together with local representatives to help bring Harley home.
