Wounded war dog who saved many lives has new role

04/10/2013 | WBRC-TV (Birmingham, Ala.)

Lucca, a military dog trained to locate explosives, lost her left foot and subsequently her leg after one of the devices she found detonated in Afghanistan last year. Despite the violence she's witnessed and suffered, Lucca maintains a loving spirit, according to her handler and now owner, Marine Gunnery Sgt. Chris Willingham. "She's been through a lot.

Lucca is now retired, but she and Willingham are traveling with the National Military Working Dog monument before it comes to rest in Texas.
