This Special Forces dog received a medal for his chivalry in battle after he saved countless lives detecting bombs in Afghanistan.
The pooch, a Belgian Malinois, was dubbed the “guardian angel” after he helped protect a squad during an assault on an enemy stronghold in 2012.
In the spite of his numerous grenade blast injuries, Mali, the dog, kept on doing his job and duties in the battlefield. He has now been give the PDSA Dickin Medal on Friday, the animal equivalent of a Victoria Cross medal for bravery in the UK.
I am so glad that Mali is getting the recognition he deserves, because he is a truly one-of-a-kind hero! Watch a video about Mali below!
