A HEROIC dog has been awarded the animal version of the Victoria Cross after sniffing out bombs in over 400 missions.

Lucca, a German Shepherd, has been awarded with the PDSA D!ckin Medal after serving in the US Marines Corps for six years.

The 12 year-old’s job was to sniff out munitions in Iraq and Afghanistan.PDSA_06_2780840a
But in 2012, the German Shepherd lost her leg and suffered chest burns when she discovered a home-made bomb in Afghanistan.

The pooch has been retired ever since.PDSA_03_2780836a

Lucca and her owner Gunnery Sergeant Chris Willingham travelled to London to receive this honour.

He said: “Lucca is very intelligent, loyal and had an amazing drive for work as a search dog. She is the only reason I made it home to my family and I am fortunate to have served with her. Today, I do my best to keep her spoiled in her well-deserved retirement.”
