Sgt. Chris Duke was serving in Afghanistan when a s.u.i.c.i.d.e b.o.m.b.e.r tried to a.t.t.a.c.k his base, but his life was saved thanks to three stray dogs he had befriended.
He was especially close to one of the dogs he named Rufus. Feeling he owed Rufus his life, the soldier arranged to bring the heroic dog back home.
