“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.” – Josh Billings

A few months ago, we wrote a piece on the Fox Nation show Hero Dogs. The show highlights the loyalty, courage, and selflessness of our trained canine warriors that work with our military, law enforcement, fire departments, and first responders to protect those in need of help, while, at times attack those who would do us harm. 

I cannot imagine life without a dog. As I’ve frequently written, my English Bulldog is usually glued to my side inside the home, (especially when it involves me cooking).

Dogs’ trainability, courageousness, and loyalty to their human companions make them great teammates in our military, police, and first responders. Dogs have been used by armies for thousands of years. Greeks and Romans used dogs as sentries or scouting patrols, with the earliest recorded use of dogs being around 600BC.
