Soldier Wants To Adopt Dog Who Took 4 Bullets For Him, But People Mock Him For It

"If the dogs put the time for the country, then the country owes it to them to put the time for them. She saved my life, so I owed it to her to save her life."

Layka the 4-year-old Belgian Malinois may be a true war hero in every sense of the word. Paired alongside the U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Julian McDonald, K9 was deployed in Afghanistan to perform bomb detection missions. When their regiment was attacked by the shooter, Laika defended Julian fearlessly and was hit by 4 bullets in the battle with the shooter.

After checking the situation, Julian sent the bleeding Lycra to the hospital. The brave dog survived after an intensive 7-hour-long surgery, but unfortunately, her damaged leg had to be amputated in the process. Julian knew that the three-legged Lycra was about to retire now, so he promised to adopt her after deployment.

When Julian did apply for Lycra in the newspaper, people just laughed at him. They thought Layka was “too aggressive” to be a traditional pet which she would be a threat to his kids. But Julian ignored the warning and adopted Lycra because he owed the dog a life.

This wonderful video shows how Layka easily transitioned to civilian life after retirement. She was very gentle with her young human brothers and sisters, and trained other dogs with Julian in the military academy!

Julian believes that K9s aren't scary dogs, but have only done what they were trained toto out of duty. he's grateful to Layka for keeping him alive and helping him enjoy a full life as well as his family. Layka is embodiment of loyalty and courage and we’re so pleased with her! Click the video below to see how Julian did everything in his power to face by the dog who saved his life.
