Sergeant Stubby (US Army), World War I’s most decorated dog, nabbed a German spy and outranked it’s owner.

A stray puppy walked onto the Yale University campus in 1917, where the 102nd Infantry Regiment was training.

During it’s 18 months of service, Stubby took part in 17 engagements, survived a series of wounds, and gave his fellow soldiers a much-needed boost of morale.
