When U.S. military combat dog Layka was shot four times by the enemy at point-blank range, saving the lives of many soldiers in the process, her handler, Staff Sgt. Julian McDonald, fought incredibly hard to adopt her afterward.
Despite the criticism of many of Julian’s peers, the brave Belgian Malinois now lives a happy life with the Sargent and his family, and her inspirational story was shared onto YouTube by National Geographic.
This amazing video indicates how Layka has without problems transitioned into civilian existence after retirement. She is extraordinarily mild with her younger human siblings and spends her day coaching different puppies with Julian in the army academy!
Julian thinks that K9 dogs aren’t bad dogs, they are just doing what they are trained for. At the very end if it wasn’t for Layka, maybe Julian wouldn’t have made it. He is very blessed and proud for her ! Julian trys his best do give her the life she truly deserves!
