This dedicated bomb-sniffing dog is getting the recognition she deserves.
A 12-year-old German shepherd named Lucca has spent the last six years protecting Marines by smelling out explosives overseas. Not a single soldier ever died on her watch.
On what would be her last mission in Afghanistan, Lucca discovered a 30-pound homemade bomb and while she was sniffing for others, its detonation robbed her of her front leg.
Gunnery Sergeant Christopher Willingham has even made the loyal canine part of his family, providing a luxurious retirement in California.
