Marine Dog Being Awarded Purple Heart

An update about a bomb-sniffing dog that belonged to the late Marine Corporal Dustin Lee of Stonewall Mississippi. Eight year old Lex is a German Shepherd who was working with Lee when the Marine was killed in iraq last year.

Now an award is coming to Lex -- the dog will be given a purple heart next month at the working dog and fallen k-9 handler tribute.

The retired dog currently lives with his fallen handler's family in Clarke County.
