This is a really touching video. I think it was shameful how the army treated these animals when they chose to leave them behind.
Things are much different now. If a handler gets wounded and returns home, so does the dog. If a handler is KIA, the dog returns home. If a dog gets wounded, they have the same priority as a soldier. They are often flown to Germany with the handler to receive the best veterinary care available. No U.S. Military dogs get left behind.
There are still some major issues in the military dog world, particularly with adoption after the dog is retired, but things are much better than they used to be.
When a dog saves the life of a man, it becomes clear that partnership knows no bounds.
