Government: Soldier's heroic dog, brought from Afghanistan, mistakenly euthanized

• Arizona Republic

As a dog in war-torn Afghanistan, Target survived an explosion set off by a suicide bomber he had fought off, potentially saving dozens of soldiers' lives. But Target could not survive his time in the care of Pinal County's Animal Control division.

Target, brought to the San Tan Valley area southeast of Phoenix by a soldier who befriended him in Afghanistan, was accidentally euthanized Monday morning.

Typical treatment of Americas veterans. Thank you for your service. Now we can't afford to keep you alive. I am so ashamed to be an American.
