Lucca served with the US Marine Corps in 2 tours of Iraq and one in Afghanistan.
Specialising in bomb detection she successfully protected her handlers and their comrades in over 400 missions, losing her left foreleg to an ied
which led to her retirement.
It was quite moving seeing her old handler, a gunnery sergeant, talk about her recovery and his pride in and love for her was quite obvious.
Dunno how he keeps his blues so clean living with a shepherd though. Everything I own is gsd coloured.
