RALEIGH, N.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A soldier from West Michigan has been reunited with the dog he served with during two tours in Afghanistan.

Staff Sergeant Andy Wolf, of Mattawan, hasn't seen Iras in more than two years, and now, thanks to donations, they are back together again.

The Wolf family greeted Iras just after his plane landed Thursday afternoon in Raleigh, North Carolina.

The bomb sniffing dog went through more than 100 combat missions with Staff Sergeant Wolf, who credits him for saving countless lives.

"We just lived together 24-7, and then we came on orders to deploy, and I think we left in July 2010," Sgt. Wolf said. "The amount of time and what we went through together; there's nothing to explain what you feel."

Staff Sgt. Wolf is stationed at Fort Bragg.

Iras will live with his new family in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
