Sgt. Jason Terry, United States Forces - Afghanistan, pets Military Working Dog Brandon during a break in
Kandahar Province, Afghanistan, Feb. 6, 2012. Brandon is used to detect improvised explosive devices
during military operations. (U.S. Army photo by Spc. Kristina Truluck/Released)


I loved working with these two- you can see how much they care about each other. Brandon is such an
intelligent dog and loves people. He ended up being my cuddlebuddy on the floor of the vehicle that night. xD

This is amazing <3 I have a soft spot for soldiers because of what they do for their countries and I love animals to bits, this just shows the real love a human and an animal can have-- there is no ego here or any man looking down to a dog, these two are equals and both sacrificing themselves for others <3
