People aren’t the only ones who begin to suffer as a result of war. This is Vidar, a 4 year-old Belgian Malinois dog that worked in the military as a bomb-hunting dog. After two tours of duty, something happened to Vidar. He began experiencing post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms. Vidar grew very timid and began losing his sight, which unfortunately put him at risk for being put down. The best friend he made during his tours of duty, Army medic Angie McDonnell, stepped in and saved his life.
Most people may not realize just how sensitive dogs are. When they are put through stresses, it affects them just like it affects you or me. Vidar only had PTSD because of his time serving his country, it’s wonderful that he was able to find a happy ending with a best friend he made along the way.
Share his incredible rescue with others.
