Sgt. Chris Duke was serving in Afghanistan when became friends with three dogs; Rufus, Target, and Sasha. He gave them food and took care of them. The pooches grew very close to Chris. One day, a suicide bomber tried to attack his base. But when the dogs noticed the suspicious person, they did everything in their power to stop him themselves. They attacked the intruder and this forced him to detonate the bomb before even entering the base. Thanks to the dogs, all the 50 soldiers survived that night.

He was adopted by one of the soldiers, but he escaped from the family’s yard, was captured by animal control, and was euthanized by accident. The video below shares the touching moment when Sgt.
