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."

The 4-year-old Belgian Malinois Layka (Layka) is a true hero in every experience. Paired alongside the U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Julian McDonald, the K9 was once deployed in Afghanistan for bomb detection duties. When their regiment received attacked through a shooter, Layka fearlessly shielded Julian and took four bullets whilst struggle the shooter.






After Julian controlled the situation, he sent the bleeding Lycra to the hospital. This brave dog survived a 7-hour intensive operation, but unfortunately, her broken leg had to be amputated in the process. Julian knew the 3-legged Layla would be retired now, so he pledged to undertake her after his deployment.




When Julian submitted documents in good faith to take over Lycra, humans were just laughing at him. They think Layka used to be “too aggressive” to be an every day pet and that she would be a danger to his kids. But Julian did not heed the warning and adopted Lycra because he owed the dog a life.






This amazing video shows how Lycra transitioned to civilian life without problems after retirement. She is very gentle with young human brothers and sisters, and trains different puppies with Julian at the military school!





Julian believes that K9s are not terrible dogs now, but have completely accomplished what they were educated to do. He is grateful to Layka for retaining him alive and supporting him go through a full lifestyle with his family. Layka is an embodiment of loyalty and braveness and we’re so proud of her!
