Who’s a fantastic boy? US will not name puppy that helped grab ISIS leader

Last updated on November 7, 2019

Who’s a fantastic dog? The army will not say, but here is the first look in the hero pooch.

The dog that has been hurt in the raid that killed ISIL pioneer Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is back together with his handler and recovering from his injuries, Pentagon officials said.

President Donald Trump published a photograph of this puppy after Monday. On Sunday he hailed the puppy’s activities while describing the Saturday evening raid — but didn’t disclose any details about the brave puppy’s identity.

“We are protecting his individuality.”

The dog was pursuing al-Baghdadi down a dead-end tunnel as soon as the ISIS leader detonated a suicide vest, killing himself and three of the kids.

The puppy suffered unspecified injuries.

“I call this type of puppy. A gorgeous puppy — a gifted dog — has been hurt and brought back”

Trump, the president to not have a furry friend from the White House in over a century, has used”dog” as a put-down, such as in his opinions Sunday. Al-Baghdadi, he explained, “died like a puppy.

Milley said the unidentified creature was”slightly hurt and completely recovering,” and prepared to return to work.

“The puppy remains in cinema, returned to duty with its handler, so we’re not likely to release only yet photographs or titles of puppies, or whatever,” the general said, adding that”the military working dog performed a huge service as they do in many different situations.”

The K-9s possess a huge success rate in regards to targeting terror chiefs.

A Belgian Malinois called Cairo followed the Navy SEALs who murdered Osama bin Laden in 2011, and allegedly helped protect the perimeter while the SEALs monitored the al Qaeda founder . Time magazine gave Cairo its own”Animal of the Year” award in 2011 — until his identity was made public. “This epic dog deserves an excess cure, or even twelve,” the statement said.
