ABSTRACT
The article narrates the story of Sabi, a black Labrador who learned to live on her own in Afghanistan for more than a year. Sabi is a military dog who helps Australian troops find bombs by sniffing them out to protect the solders who were in Afghanistan to fight a war together with 70,000 U.S. troops. She was separated from her fighting unit on September 2008 and was only found four months later by an American solder. Her Australian unit never learned how she survived on her own.
