A heroic dog that was injured during the U.S. military operation that killed Islamic State (ISIS) leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has already returned to duty, the U.S. government said Monday.
The dog is fine and has returned to duty, an unnamed U.S. official told Reuters White House correspondent Steve Holland.
President Donald Trump lauded the canine at Sundays press conference in which he offered vivid details of how the elite U.S. Army special operators took down one of the worlds most wanted terrorists.
Our K-9, as they call it, a beautiful dog, a talented dog, was injured and brought back, the president said in his national address from the White House.
Speaking to the Washington Examiner, one Delta Force soldier said of the dogs wounds: The injury to the dog is an injury to one of us. These dogs are a special breed of courageous.
Neither President Trump nor the Department of Defense (D0D) has released additional details regarding the canine soldier, but retired Marine Ron Aiello told the New York Times that the dog was either a Belgian Malinois or German Shepherd.
If theyre leading the patrol, they want a dog that is not only an explosive detection dog but on command can be aggressive, said Aiello. On a mission like this you want a dog that can be aggressive when necessary.

Good doggy... Good doggy... that can tear an arm off of a terrorist.
I’m generally opposed to getting dogs involved in human bullshit. But in this case it sure is satisfying that that islamofascist met his maker at the hands of all dog. See my tagline.
Awesome dogs....good to hear it wasn't killed whichever kind it was.
Any culture that hates dogs can go to hell, as far as I’m concerned.
Great to hear!!!
Glad that he got better and was able to return to duty.
Leave no dog behind.
God Bless our Hero Pups!!!!!!!
Whos a good boy! Good boy!
Same with any culture that EATS dogs.
Wish we had video of doggie chewing on Bagdeadi
a dog is God’s first responder
I love that bodybagdaddy is rotting hamburger now but the dog is a hero. The muzz slimes are having a bad day. Lol
This was a big operation and they hit that compound with extreme vengeance.
“”retired Marine Ron Aiello told the New York Times that the dog was either a Belgian Malinois or German Shepherd.”

And German Shepherd’s are my favorite. Totally dedicated and trustworthy dogs!
I would not want to be the focus of that soldier when hes told to get him!
Oh thank god!
More trustworthy than any Democrat...
God Bless this courageous canine, indeed.
Amazing dog and it’s great to hear this good news.
BTW, not only are dogs now indispensable in fighting terrorists, but remember how PDJT has pointed out their incomparable value in detecting drugs along the border.
Man’s best friend to the rescue time after time!
and I might add smarter....
