Bomb-Sniffing Dog Awarded Ukraine’s Medal of Honor

YouTube, @Today.

A Ukrainian dog named Patron really is a good boy.

The bomb-sniffing dog was recently awarded Ukraine’s Medal of Honor by the country’s president Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

Patron has detected over 200 undetonated devices since the beginning of Russia’s attack on Ukraine.

In a statement, Zelenskyy said, “Today, I want to award those Ukrainian heroes who are already clearing our land of mines. And together with our heroes, a wonderful little sapper — Patron — who helps not only to neutralize explosives, but also to teach our children the necessary safety rules in areas where there is a mine threat.”

Do you think animals should get special awards for their service in the military? Do you have any dogs?
