SAN ANTONIO -- A former military dog trainer and his now-retired canine partner have been reunited in an emotional encounter in Texas.

Aaron Stice (stys) was a corporal in the Marines when he last saw the Belgian Malinois (mal-ihn-WAH') named Kkeaton (KEE'-tuhn) in October at Camp Pendleton in California.

Stice is now a civilian trainer at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland and wanted to adopt the explosive-detecting dog that he'd worked with for several years. The nonprofit group American Humane made Tuesday's reunion possible in San Antonio.
