Dogs are said to be man’s best friends and the internet is full of videos offered as proof. The story below is one of them. Wait till you see what these three previously stray dogs did for their soldier friend!
Sgt. Chris Duke was serving in Afghanistan when he made friends with Rufus, Target, and Sasha. He fed them and took care of them. So they were very close to Chris. One day, a suicide bomber tried to attack his base.
When the dogs noticed the suspicious person, they did their best to stop him themselves. They attacked the intruder and this forced him to detonate the bomb before even entering the base. Thanks to these brave canines, all the 50 soldiers survived that night.
Sadly, Sasha the youngest pup couldn’t survive the injuries. Target had an unfortunate tragedy as well. He was adopted by another soldier, but he escaped from the family’s yard, was captured by animal control, and was euthanized.
But Chris never forgot those dogs and after returning home, wrote to a non-profit, Hope for the Warriors, asking them to rescue Rufus and bring him to the U.S. Watch this touching video to see how it all turns out and let us know what you think in the Facebook comments!
