A dog in the anti-terrorist operation area (ATO) covered two Ukrainian fighters with his body during the attack. He took the impact upon himself and was wounded. Military doctors attempted saving the dog's life.

Censor.NET reports citing ASAP EMS Khottabych charity foundation on Facebook.

"In the morning, rescuers of ASAP RESCUE brought two wounded soldiers in the morning. As they returned to the position, a gravely wounded dog was brought in. The pet covered two more fighters with his body and took the impact upon himself.

"Despite not being able to protect his master from wounds, the dog rushed to save others.

"He was wounded in his neck, breast, and a paw," the message reads.

The dog was offered first aid on spot and taken to Toretsk hospital. A military anesthetist and two surgeons were fighting for his life over two hours. The dog survived, the foundation reported.
