Warrior Dog: The True Story of a Navy SEAL and His Fearless Canine Partner (DB114541)
By Will Chesney
Reading time: 4 hours, 50 minutes
GENRES: Biography; War and the Military; Animals and Wildlife
“When Will Chesney became a Navy SEAL, he never imagined working with dogs. But when he was introduced to Cairo, a Belgian Malinois, they immediately became close. Will and Cairo started working together, side by side, depending on each other for survival in hundreds of critical operations. Soon their bond went beyond military service to true friendship. As Will moved on to other assignments, he saw Cairo less and less. Then, in 2011, the call came: Pick up your dog and get back to Virginia. Now, Cairo and Will trained for weeks, but it soon became clear that this was no ordinary mission. Cairo was among the first members of the US military on the ground in Pakistan as part of Operation Neptune Spear, which resulted in the successful elimination of Osama bin Laden. After the mission, Will went back to his job, until 2013, when a grenade blast left him severely injured. Now it was up to Cairo to save Will’s life once more — and then up to Will to be there when Cairo needed him the most.”
