In the United States military, dogs play a important role, constantly risking their lives to protect others.
They have a variety of skills and powers that humans lack, such as using their solid sense of smell to detect mines and bombs. They build true bonds with their human teammates as well, which can persist long after release is finished.
That’s what one touching viral photo depicts, as a dedicated military dog guards a soldier sleeping at the airport.
Someone observed the attentive German shepherd maintaining a supervise his napping comrade at the Indianapolis airport and snapped a photo. They were relaxing at the airport terminal among a team of 10 human soldiers and two dogs, according to WPTV.
It was unclear if they were getting ready to fly out for release or returning home, however they were clearly exhausted and required to get some remainder anywhere they could.
And this soldier could relax peacefully, knowing that his devoted guardian was watching out for him, keeping an eye on him, and maybe acting as a fuzzy covering as well.
