I don’t want to write this post. In August I told you about 3 dogs in Afghanistan who thwarted a suicide bomber and saved 50 human lives. The 2 surviving dogs, Rufus & Target, were brought to the U.S. and later their offspring came too. Such lucky dogs. Target went to live with Sgt. Terry Young and his family in Arizona.
Tragically, Target, who helped stop the suicide bomber by attacking him, was killed in an Arizona animal shelter due to a mistake. To have survived so much, only to be killed in an animal shelter just breaks my heart. I can’t imagine what this soldier and his family are going through. You can see how important these dogs were to the men who befriended them in this piece from when Sgt. Young was on the Oprah Show.
