A military dog who lost a leg when sniffing out a roadside bomb has been awarded the animal equivalent of the Victoria Cross after serving in more than 400 missions in Iraq and Afghanistan. Lucca, a 12-year-old German shepherd, served in the US Marine Corps for six years, protecting the lives of troops by sniffing out munitions.

Belgian Malinois, apparently the gene that causes the black mask (common to Pugs, Mastiffs, Danes, GSDs and Belgian Shepherds) has a quirk that extends the dark/sooty markings to all the extremities (vaguely similar to Siamese cats)
