While on a duty in Afghanistan, Lucca, a military dog, lost her leg after discovering a 30lb improvised explosive device. Her partner tried his best to save her. She was given a first aid, but unfortunately, they weren’t able to save her leg. Lucca was able to learn how to go on with her life with only 3 legs.
A few years later, she and her partner were both called to receive an award. Because of her heroic act in 2012, she and her partner received a medal of honor from the British government. The government awarded her the PSDA Dickin Medal.
