Lex, the military working dog who was adopted by the Lee family of Stonewall, Miss., has died.
Retired Military Working Dogs reported Lex died Sunday at 2:02 p.m. He was 12 years old and had suffered health problems.
Lex was wounded in the explosion that claimed the life of his handler, Marine Cpl. Dustin Lee, in 2007.
It took months of cutting through red tape for the Lees to be able to adopt Lex.
