Did you ever think that a dog could save someone's life?

I'm living proof that it can happen. My name's Jamie, and I want to tell you about something that happened to me last summer.

You were probably on your school holidays. I was in Afghanistan, fighting the Taliban. I lost my leg doing it. But I can live with that. Because if it wasn't for a brave sniffer dog and his handler, I'd have lost a whole lot more... Told through the eyes of Jamie, an amputee veteran, WAR DOG is the story of Lance Corporal Sam Maguire, part of a bomb disposal squad in Afghanistan, and the springer spaniel sniffer dog Charlie who becomes his best friend.
