Being a girl really sucks sometimes!!
While serving in Afghanistan, Layka a German Shepherd combat dog, was shot four times by enemy fire. Despite her injuries, she managed to attack and subdue the shooter, saving her handler, Staff Sgt. Julian McDonald, and the other members of their team.
Layka suffered multiple injuries, including losing a leg. McDonald was so grateful for the dog’s service, he adopted her and made her part of his family.
