A German shepherd dog is being praised for his heroism during an attack on an SAS team by a group of Islamic terrorists in Iraq.

The U.S. Army dog, who is still in training, had just finished a ten day sting with a mainly British special forces team assisting Peshmerga fighters in northern Iraq. The dog was on board in a caravan of four vehicles heading back to base, when they were ambushed by a crew of ISIS militants.
What happened next was totally badass, as described by the Inquisitr:
One of the vehicles was destroyed by a homemade bomb. The group had to abandon their vehicles and take cover, as about 50 Islamic members attacked.
The SAS had split into three groups, and when the British soldiers tried to move out, the jihadists attacked them from behind. The soldiers were surrounded.
The SAS had called for air support, but were under heavy fire and at risk of being overrun.
The dog was with its American handler and becoming very agitated by the activity, reports said.
When the Brits attempted to move to better cover, and were flanked by a couple of jihadists, the American released his dog.
The German shepherd ran straight for the closest ISIS fighter, dodging bullets to reach him, as both fighters were shooting at him. He hit the man hard, taking him down and tearing at his arms and face.
The dog then left his first target and attacked the second jihadi, reports said, “savaging his arms and legs.”
Both of the ISIS members turned and ran for their lives, screaming.
The dog came back to his handler with his tail wagging.
This particular German shepherd mentioned in the SAS incident is the first dog to be praised for directly saving the lives of its troops.
Just when you thought these ‘Fuck ISIS’ stories couldn’t get any better eh? Tonnes of brave soldiers out there constantly fucking these pricks up but now we’ve got war dogs getting in on the action too. Awesome stuff. Only wish we had the dog’s name to give him a proper bigging up. Fuck ISIS!
