THE DOG WHO HELPED TAKE DOWN AL-BAGHDADI Meet Conan

On Oct. 28 last year, President Donald Trump tweeted a photo that quickly went viral. It showed an adorable snapshot of a bright-eyed Belgian Malinois, tongue lolling, still wearing its camo military vest. In the caption, President Trump explained that the pup, Conan, was a national hero who was instrumental in taking down ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. With four years in special operations forces and roughly 50 missions under his collar, Conan was selected to be part of the team that pursued al-Baghdadi through a network of underground tunnels in northwest

Syria, where the terrorist ultimately died. It’s unclear whether Conan was there to track al-Baghdadi or to spot improvised explosive devices that may have been planted on the route, but either way, he performed well. According to NBC News, Conan was injured by some live electrical cables during the mission, but he recovered quickly and was back on duty within the week. Meanwhile, President Trump invited the brave pup to the White House and tweeted out a doctored photo that showed him awarding Conan a Medal of Honor. President Trump captioned the photo “AMERICAN HERO!” and he’s not alone in his appreciation for the hardworking dogs that have been helping our military since World War II. “To me, they’re the first line of defense,” United States War Dogs Association President Ron Aiello told Vox after the news about Conan came out. “They’re such a great asset to our military today.”

“There aren’t enough words in the dictionary to describe how appreciative I am of Mr. Konecky! I thought for sure that I would be stuck on probation for at least two years, and then came my personal hero! He was not only able to have my probation modified so that I would be able to travel tri-county, but now, because of him, I will

also officially be off of probation in July. I am so happy that I found him; my only regret is that I didn’t find him sooner! If I could give more than five stars, I would! He was very professional, explained everything to me, didn’t make any promises, and was very straight forward. When he enters the courtroom, he has a disposition about him that says, ‘I’m here to take care of business,’ and that’s exactly what he did.

Look no further! Mr. Konecky is your guy. I HIGHLY recommend him! Thanks again for everything! –Amanda L
