Hero SAS dog saves the lives of six elite soldiers

I know, it's not really political, so to speak, but we could all use some off topic good news. Enjoy :thumbup:

An SAS team was saved after a brave military dog fought off a jihadi who attacked a patrol in northern Syria.

The unnamed Belgian Malinois, a fierce breed of sheepdog known for its bravery, had been out on a routine patrol with a team of six crack soldiers from the SAS.
They had just entered a small village in a convoy of armoured vehicles when they got out to continue the recce on foot.

But soon after they left the safety of the convoy, they were attacked on all sides by waiting jihadis in what was described as a '360 degree ambush'.
The SAS men returned fire but the jihadis began closing in and tried to outflank them.

The animal was said to have leapt to the defence of the struggling British soldiers, tearing the throat of on gunman who was firing at the patrol.

It then turned on two other jihadis, leaving them seriously injured before the other six ambushers all fled.


The SAS found themselves in a 360-degree ambush.

'The initiative was with the terrorists and the only hope for the British was to try and make a run for it.

'The handler removed the dog's muzzle and directed him into a building from where they were coming under fire.

'They could hear screaming and shouting before the firing from the house stopped.


'When the team entered the building they saw the dog standing over a dead gunman.

Point of contention, there is no such thing as a Malinois, the name was changed because of the hatred for Germans/Nazi, but the bloodlines all lead back to the original German Shepard.

Animals are so much better than humans.
