A U.S. Marine Corps German Shepherd, named Lucca, lost a leg sniffing out a roadside bomb in Afghanistan. Now, she is receiving the PDSA Dickin Medal at the Wellington Barracks in London. She has served U.S. troops during more than 400 missions in Iraq and Afghanistan over a six-year span!
She is the first Marine Corps dog to receive the medal, which is considered the top honor for war animals around the world.
Her career ended in March 2012 when she lost her leg and suffered chest burns from the bombing in Afghanistan’s Helmand Province but that wasn’t the end of the road for her.
