Repinning Sergeant Stubby because he is the best. "The most decorated war dog of WWI and the only dog to be promoted to sergeant through combat...After being gassed himself, Stubby learned to warn his unit of poison gas attacks, located wounded soldiers in no man's land, and — since he could hear the whine of incoming artillery shells before humans could — became very adept at letting his unit know when to duck for cover.
