U.S.—Everyone praised the classified "Hero Dog" for taking down ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Everyone, that is, except CNN, who quickly searched through the dog's internet history and college yearbooks. Sure enough, CNN found a picture of the Hero Dog partying at obedience school. In the picture, the dog is seen sniffing a butt without consent.
His phone is red hot. But Van Hoof is used to that. He is often in the news, it sounds convincing. Now that is not so strange: the tweet that Donald Trump threw into the world about 23 hours ago shows a picture of "his" Malinois. "A beautiful dog who did a great job of conquering and killing the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi," said the president of the United States.
I recognized him immediately. I brought it here when he was a year old. Exactly how long he sat here, I dare not say, "says Van Hoof. He explains that DACH Police Dogs and Services is a sort of intermediate station. In Best the training basis is laid, then they are selected, in this case by an American police unit, which they "train", as it is called.
For example in war zones, for the detection of explosives. They secure it. Or to tackle people who have something evil in mind, "says Van Hoof. The latter was certainly the case last Saturday. IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was hiding, allegedly cornered by "Van Hoof's dog," and then blew himself up through his bomb jacket.
