A Military Dog Is Captured by the Taliban

On Thursday, the Afghan Taliban said it had captured a U.S. military dog and posted a video of the dog online. In the video, the dog is wearing a “complex harness” and mills around members of the Taliban, clearly frightened.

According to the Guardian, the dog appears to be Belgian Sheepdog. The paper talked to “an experienced dog handler” who has worked in Afghanistan, who said the dog “just wants to get back to his handler.

“You see the ears? They are down, that tells you that the dog is not aggressive and just wants to feel safe. Right now the dog is terrified.”
