Awarded for the first time during the Second World War, the Dickin Medal is the most prestigious military honor offered to animal heroes, soldiers of the British armed forces. Dogs capable of distinguishing themselves in battle with courage and sacrifice. The latest dog to receive such a reward will be a Belgian shepherd dog who last year had a difficult mission in Afghanistan. His name is Kuno, he is just four years old and was awarded in November during a virtual ceremony. The decision was made official by the association that presides over the award: the People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals.
