Soldier Dogs: The Untold Story of America's Canine Heroes by Maria Goodavage


A number one reporter deals a tour of militia working canine' extraordinary training, heroic accomplishments, and the lasting influences they have got on folks who work with them.

Individuals far and wide the world have been riveted by way of the story of Cairo, the Belgian Malinois who was once part of the Navy SEAL staff that led the raid on Osama bin Weighted down's compound. A canine's pure intelligence, bodily skills, and pure loyalty contribute more to our armed forces efforts than ever prior to. You don't need to be a canine lover to be occupied with the concept a dog-the cousin of that furry man begging for scraps underneath your table-will be some of the heroes who helped execute probably the most critical and high-tech military mission of the new millennium.
Now Maria Goodavage, editor and featured author for one of the vital world's most generally read canine blogs, tells heartwarming tales of brand new soldier canines and the superb bonds that boost between them and their handlers. Past tales of training, operations, retirement, and adoption into the households of fallen squaddies, Goodavage talks to leading canine-cognition consultants about why canine like nothing greater than to be on a mission with a handler they belief, irrespective of how deadly the IEDs they’re sniffing, nor how a ways they need to parachute or rappel from aircraft into enemy territory.
“Armed forces working canines reside for love and praise from their handlers,” says Ron Aiello, president of the US Conflict Dogs Association and a former marine scout dog handler. “The work is all a major game, and then they get that pet, that praise. They’d do the rest for his or her handler.” That is an extraordinary window into the world of these adventurous, loving warriors.
