Conan The Service Dog Honored for Taking Down Isis Leader

Conan the military service dog who helped U.S. special forces take out the ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi last month was honored at the White House this week. Conan, a Belgian Malinois was honored in the Rose Garden by President Trump, who called the canine “incredible” and “brilliant.”

“Conan did a fantastic job and we’re very honored to have Conan here and to have given Conan a certificate and an award,” Trump said.

Conan worked with special forces to track al-Baghdadi down a tunnel during the raid in Syria, though the dog was injured during the mission. Conan has since made a full recovery from his injuries.

“Having this extraordinary dog here today is all a reflection of our armed forces and the great job that they do. Conan is really a hero,” said Pence, who petted the dog throughout Trump’s brief remarks. “It’s really a joy to be able to help welcome him here to the White House.”

“They’re kind of the first line of defense,” Ron Aiello, a retired Marine who runs the nonprofit U.S. War Dogs Association, told NPR last month. “Their job is to detect any type of danger that’s out front.”

Trump, who on Monday called Conan a “tough cookie,” has previously praised the dog. He also tweeted out a photoshopped image of Conan receiving the Medal of Honor.

I want a refund. This place denied my service animal and proceeded to not provide avenues to eventually get him certified. It took an act of god to get this woman, Robin, to tell me the minimum age requirements and she couldn't tell me training certification requirements. She simply said "if a check in counter agent at the airport sees you dog looking around, they aren't going to think he's trained" What kind of insensible response is that?

Great experience, easy to do, just wish the identifying gear was more affordable or they offered a coupon of sorts. Cards came in less than a wk.
