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