Dog Saving The Soldiers From The Shot Received The Highest Honor

This story is about a hero with wagging tails and covered with fur instead of capes. The dog named Military K9 Kuno created an incredible account by going beyond his duties and putting his own life on the line to save the soldiers.

It can be said that Kuno did incredible things. His action is not just the call of duty, and it deserves to be awarded. With his dedication, British Military awarded him the Dickin Medal as the highest decoration.No one is more worthy of receiving it than him.

Kuno’s Sacrifice

Kuno succeeded in different missions. However, the last mission is the most remarkable one. During a raid on an al-Qaeda base, he backed up British forces. Unfortunately, an unexpected thing happened. The invaders with machine guns quickly surrounded British soldiers. At that time, Kuno soon realized that his humans were trapped, so he decided to save them.

According to Maj. Sherrain Reber, after being pinned down by an insurgent’s grenade and machine-gun fire, the force could not move without suffering injuries. Kuno saw that, and he did not hesitate to jump through a hail of bullets and break the attacker’s strategy. His final mission was done.

After the process of saving his soldiers, Kuno was severely injured. To be more precise, His back legs were filled with bullet wounds, and then he got treatment in the U.S. Army Veterinary Treatment Facility. Finally, although they were able to save Kuno, his rear paw had to be cut.

The Dickin Medal

Due to the injury on the back legs, Kuno now has to wear a brace on one side and a prosthetic on the other side. He was the first U.K. Military Working Dog who has a custom-fitted prosthetic leg. After completing the final mission, he retired. A caring family has adopted him since then. Kuno now is living as a normal dog in a life full of love. This is also his chance to have more time to play whatever he wants.

The People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA) awarded Kuno the Dickin Medal for his dedication. He has become the 72nd animal to achieve that award till now. The other animals are 35 dogs, 32 WW2 messenger pigeons, four horses, and one cat.

British defense secretary Ben Wallace said that Kuno deserves to receive the PDSA Dickin Medal with his bravery. She added that it is a big honor of their military dogs’ role not only in domestic but also international operations. Through this story, we are reminded of how these animals went with us to ensure our safety.

Kuno’s dedication, sacrifice, and courage will be remembered forever. Finally, he’s having a wonderful time in retirement with his family. He is worthy of having a happy life.
