SYDNEY (al-AP) – A bomb-sniffing dog that disappeared during a fierce battle in Afghanistan between Australian troops and militant fighters has been found and returned to its unit after more than a year.

And Sabi the black Labrador is getting a celebrity welcome home.

Sabi was with a joint Australian-Afghan army patrol ambushed in restive Uruzgan province in September 2008, triggering a gunfight that wounded nine troops and earned one Australian soldier the country’s highest bravery medal.

But there was no sign of Sabi after the battle, and months of searching failed to find any sign of the retriever—until now.

Defense officials said Thursday that a U.S. soldier recovered Sabi at an isolated patrol base elsewhere in Uruzgan. Further details about the base were not given.

  1. Dogs are not popular amongst Muslims. A Pakistani friend of mine told me that Muslims rarely keep dogs as pets.

    So… I guess nobody wanted to take the pup into their home. Therefore it figures that the canine eventually found its way back home.
