Kuno is the protagonist of the heroic story of a dog, who wags his tail and is covered in fur, who risked his life for the soldiers and went beyond his duties. He went beyond his own mission and risked his life to save the soldiers, creating an amazing account. The British Military presented him with the Dickin Medal as the highest award for his actions that went beyond the call of duty. No one is more deserving of receiving it than he.
Kuno’s Sacrifice Kuno has had several successful quests. However, the last is the most important. During a raid on an Al-Qaeda base, he assisted British forces. However, something unexpected happened. The machine gun-wielding invaders quickly surrounded the British soldiers. Seeing his fellow humans trapped, Kuno quickly decided to save them.
The rebels attacked the Sherrain Reber with grenades and machine guns, as a result of which the detachment was immobilized and unable to move. Seeing this, Kuno did not hesitate and jumped into the hail of bullets, destroying the attacker’s plan. The mission was completed. Kuno was seriously wounded in the process of rescuing his soldiers. Specifically, his hind legs were full of gunshot wounds and he was being treated at the U.S. Army Veterinary Treatment Facility.
After Kuno’s paw was amputated, he had to wear brace on one side and a prosthetic on the other. Due to an injury, Kuno currently wears a brace on one side and a prosthetic on the other. In 2016, Kuno became the first U.K. Military Working Dog to have prosthetic legs. After retirement, he was adopted by a beloved family. As a result, Kuno now has time to do whatever he wants. He can now live as a dog in a life of love.
He became the 72nd animal to receive the Dickin Medal since the People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA) established it. The other 71 animals awarded the medal include 35 dogs, 32 WW2 messenger pigeons, four horses, and one cat.
British defense secretary Ben Wallace said in a statement that Kuno deserved the Dickin Medal for his courage. She added that the medal was a major recognition of the role of military dogs domestically and internationally. Throughout history, we are reminded that these animals have existed to protect us.
Enfin, he’s having a wonderful time in retirement with his family. He deserved a happy retirement. His dedication, sacrifice, and courage will never be forgotten!
