“The dog was hardly injured. The SAS were able to consolidate their defensive position and eventually withdraw from the battle without incurring losses. “
In the end, the SAS team commander acknowledged that the Belgian Malinois military dog had saved their lives during his mission.
Other courageous military dogs
Knowing this story, we can not help but think of other stories of dogs as brave as we have already met.
There is Chip, who would be the most decorated K9 of the Second World War. According to Barkpost, the Husky-Collie mix saved his master during an invasion of southern Italy in 1943.
Pinned by enemy fire, Chip would have liberated himself and attacked the enemy soldiers, which would have returned them to the American troops with whom Chip was. For his courageous act, the military dog has received numerous awards.
If you look at the more recent history, you’ll also see Treo, a bomb-sniffing dog who worked with British troops. This good boy received the Dickin Medal after successfully detecting many roadside bombs.
In case you do not know, the medal is considered the highest animal honor in the UK.
