Dogs of War


This Springer Spaniel, named Theo, was a sniffer dog who held the record for finding the most home-made bombs and weapons in Afghanistan. His owner Lance Corporal Liam Tasker came under fire in Helmand Province and was killed in action with Theo by his side. It is understood that Theo died hours after his handler from a seizure at the army’s Camp Bastion. Some say it was a coincidence, others say Theo died of a broken heart.
