WASHINGTON --Hero the dog is en route from Iraq to New Hampshire.

U.S. Rep. Paul Hodes says the puppy that Army Spc. Justin Rollins rescued off the streets of Samarra the day before he died has a health certificate and a travel plan for her trip to New Hampshire.

If all goes well, the dog is scheduled to arrive Thursday night at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, visit a veterinarian and be kept overnight. Hero will then be brought to Hodes' office in Concord Friday.

Brittany Murray, Rollins' fiancee, and Mitchell and Rhonda Rollins, the dead soldier's parents, also are expected at Hodes' office to greet Hero and take her home to Newport.
