    Lucca lost a leg for her owner. Xanto sniffs out bombs. Smoky's only food was her owner's shared tins. What could be more heroic than these hero dogs? From world war two to modern times, police dogs have been helping us for a long time. In this book, you will read the stories of several hero dogs who protected their masters against all odds. Animal-lovers must read! 5 stars.
