Military Dog Reunion – Target and Rufus

Rufus, left, and Target relax after reuniting with Sgt. Christopher Duke at PetAirways on Thursday, July 29, 2010, in Atlanta. Rufus, Target, and another dog, Sahsa, saved Duke’s and other soldiers’ lives while serving in Afghanistan when on the evening of Feb. 11, 2010, the dogs attacked a suicide bomber trying to enter their barracks, forcing the bomber to detonate his explosives in the entry corridor. Five soldiers sustained injuries but no one died that night thanks to the life-saving actions of the dogs. Sasha was killed in the attack.
