Ukrainian service dog received an award after saving a child
A shepherd dog named Nika, who serves in the National Guard of Ukraine, received the medal “For Dedicated Service” after saving a boy who got lost.
A little boy got lost in the Volyn region after leaving his village and never found the way back. The dog took the trail and walked more than 8 kilometers before finding the boy.
According to the dog’s owner, it was hard to find the boy since he walked along the railway tracks where the smell almost did not remain.
Luckily, Nika found the boy near a local lake. He was exhausted and frozen. Thanks to Nika, the boy is now alive and safe.
