"With more than 100 heartwarming photos, Warrior Pups is an illustrated tribute to the amazing people at the San Antonio-Lackland Air Force Base who transform wriggly little puppies into the heroic military working dogs that help fight the global war on terror. Throughout its pages, the reader learns how ·these dogs are trained to detect IEDs and terrorist ambushes. ·they are nurtured with lots of love and attention from their foster families. ·they are honored by the handlers and troops who walk behind them in the combat zone. Warrior Pups tells the story in words and images of these exceptional dogs and the fosters, trainers, and handlers from all branches of the military who are committed to making the US Military Working Dog Program the best of its kind."--Provided by publisher.
