Smoky the war dog. A heroic terrier that comforted the wounded and took part in aerial actions against Japan. http://awartobewon.com/wwii-articles/smoky-war-terrier/

This dog was a registered prisoner-of-war in a Japanese POW camp. She saved men's lives by distracting guards when they were about to be punished and was awarded the Dickin Medal. We owe dogs a lot.
