Soldiers' Dogs by Meish Goldish, Ron Aiello

In 2011, British soldiers were searching a compound in Afghanistan for explosives. Private Andrew Duff, a dog handler, was on patrol with an English springer spaniel named Jack. As Private Duff was about to take his next step, Jack suddenly stopped and sat down in front of him. It was the dog's way of letting Private Duff know that a bomb was buried just ahead-but would the soldier see the warning in time?

Look inside to find out more about Jack and other courageous military dogs that have risked their lives to protect soldiers. Some, like Jack, sniff out explosives. Others guard soldiers, weapons, vehicles, and buildings. All of them show the love and loyalty that make them a soldier's best friend.
