Our most decorated canine has died
The former Australian Army explosive detection dog, who went missing for almost 14 months in Afghanistan, suffered a number of seizures in recent weeks and scans revealed a brain tumour.
For her brave efforts, Sarbi was awarded the War Dog Operational Medal, the Canine Service Medal and RSPCA Purple Cross Award. The RSPCA Purple Cross Award recognises the deeds of animals that have shown outstanding service to humans, particularly if they showed exceptional courage in risking their own safety or life to save a person from injury or death.
Last month, a south-east Queensland dog park was named in her honour.
