Afghanistan Dog Hero Accidentally Euthanized

November 17th, 2010 by admin

A dog rescued from Afghanistan after she alerted soldiers to a suicide bomber was accidentally euthanized at an Arizona shelter on Monday.  The dog, Target, was recently brought over from Afghanistan by a soldier who had returned from his tour of duty. Target’s new owner, Army Sgt. Terry Young whose life was saved by the stray, helped bring the 2-ish-year-old from Afghanistan to her new home in Arizona.  She disappeared from Young’s home on Friday. An animal control officer picked up the dog and brought her to the shelter where the dog stayed over the weekend. On Monday morning, the employee mistakenly took the dog out of its pen and euthanized it.  The dog was not scheduled for euthanasia.  For complete story, click HERE
