Lost for 13 months in the wilds of Afghanistan, this is the dramatic, heart - warming and truly amazing story of Sarbi, the Army's most famous explosives detection dog - the miracle dog of Tarin Kot. Powerful, dramatic, heartwarming, this is the true story of Sarbi, the scruffy black Labrador - cross trained by the Australian Army as an explosives detection dog for the most dangerous combat mission imaginable. Thirteen months after Australia's most famous canine warrior went missing in action following an historic battle between the elite SAS and the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2008, she was found by an American Special Forces officer patrolling a village in a region known to be a Taliban stronghold. Against all odds, Sarbi had survived her injuries, the enemy's weapons, a bitter winter, one brutal summer and the harsh unforgiving landscape on her own. She was the miracle dog of Tarin Kot. Sarbi's story, and those of the other brave Australian Army dogs in Afghanistan, will resonate with anyone who has known the unconditional love of man's best friend, and understands the rewards of unbidden loyalty, trust and devotion. It will appeal to all those who appreciate the selflessness of serving your country and the inherent dangers of putting your life on the line for others in a war zone. And it will strike a chord with anyone who has experienced the magical connection with a dog.

Humans are indebted to dogs. We get them to do all the jobs we can’t do; we expect them to save our lives, uphold the law, find our missing, comfort our sick and elderly, be our eyes and ears, watch over our families, move our stock, entertain us and keep us warm – all for a bowl of food, the tug of a toy and a pat at the end of the day. Dogs should be revered and recognised for achieving great feats to improve human life, and this book unashamedly does just that. It tells the stories of a number of dogs, from their initial selection for work, to their training, their work experiences and their relationships with their handlers and masters. A long-time dog-owner and journalist, Maria Alomajan fleshes out each story with colourful and heartwarming anecdotes based on her interviews with the owners of these selfless animals, together with a host of charming photographs. Among the animals profiled in the book are dogs working for the police and customs; farm dogs; therapy and guide dogs; search and detection dogs (including cancer, cadaver, truffle, avalanche, LandSAR and USAR dogs); acting and show dogs; pest control dogs; guard dogs; and sled dogs.
