Family visits Camp Pendleton to adopt dog used by their fallen Marine son


The family of a Marine killed in Afghanistan had an emotional meeting Saturday at Camp Pendleton when they adopted the military dog that once worked with their son.

Staff Sgt. Christopher Diaz worked with the bomb-sniffing canine for several years before he died while working with a special operations unit in 2011. Now seven years old, the dog 'Dino' is old enough to become a permanent member of the Diaz family.
