Millcreek Township native Steve Benacci made a buddy while serving in the military overseas.

Efforts are being made to make that buddy a permanent part of Benacci’s family.

A fundraising campaign has been launched to raise the money needed for Benacci, a captain in the U.S. Army currently serving in Saudi Arabia, to bring home Tux, a mixed-breed male dog he has been fostering for an animal shelter in Saudi Arabia.

The two have bonded during the several months they have spent together, and Benacci’s family and others are now trying to bring Tux back home “where he can continue to be happy, safe and so loved,” Benacci’s wife, Christy Benacci, wrote in a recent Facebook post.

The Benaccis are currently living in Iowa but their families remain in the Erie area.
