military dog switches sides

Throughout the Russian invasion of Ukraine, there has been plenty of bumbling and buffoonery to go around:

The Ukrainian military recently forced the enemy out of the Nova Odesa district of​​ Mykolaiv Oblast. There, Ukrainian soldiers found a shepherd dog that had been abandoned by the National Guard of Russia. The Ukrainian National Guardsmen noticed the camouflage collar of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation with the inscription “5.45 ‘Defender,’” which was worn on the dog. They found out that the Russian company “K9” manufactures these for special dogs units.

Now, in a stunning story that belies just how bad things have gotten for the Kremlin, one of their good boys has decided to work for the Ukrainians.

An abandoned Russian war dog has swapped sides – and is now saving Ukrainian soldiers on the battlefield.

Belgian Malinois Max, 3, was found starving by Ukrainians in the Mykolaiv region and was nursed back to health.

Max got himself a job, too.

He has now been redeployed as a minesweeping dog after being taught to understand Ukrainian commands.

The story brought a little bit of glee to the gloom, too.

Dmitry, a member of the National Guard of Ukraine, said: ‘From now on, Max will serve on the right side, defending Ukraine and nibbling Russian asses.’

Experts were surprised to see that the Russians had abandoned Max, given how intrinsics these highly-trained animals are on the battlefield, reiterating how shoddy the Russian war effort has been.

Max has become a real favorite with the guards.

Ukrainians love dogs, they regard them as part of the family.’

Max was found by the Ukrainians. Since then, he has become proficient in Ukrainian dog commands. And now he is a mine-detecting hero dog.

Much of this post was first seen at Flag and Cross.
