Patron is a Jack Russell Terrier from Ukraine whose job is to discover explosive devices. He has sniffed his way to over 200 devices that have been defused.
Patron received an award from President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Kyiv for his service. Isn’t he the cutest? Justin Trudeau and Canada’s Prime Minister were present for the ceremony.
Some of the many heroes of this war were awarded with presidential medals today. In the presence of Justin Trudeau, Zelenskyy awarded Emergency Workers with medals, including the famous and beloved dog @patron /1 pic.twitter.com/cvX4sM1s5Y— Mattia Nelles (@mattia_n) May 8, 2022

I hope Patron got some sausage. He has deserved all sausages of the world. And liver casseroles.— дощ🌻 (@3PairsOfWings) May 9, 2022
