Saving Private Sarbi : The true story of Australia's canine war hero
SAVING PRIVATE SARBI is the dramatic and heart-warming true story of a scruffy black Labrador-cross trained by the Australian Army as an explosives detection dog for the most dangerous combat mission imaginable. This canine warrior went missing in action following an historic battle between the elite SAS and the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2008. Fourteen months later the plucky black pooch was found by an American Special Forces officer patrolling a village in a region known to be a Taliban stronghold. Against all odds, Sarbi had survived her injuries, the enemy's weapons, two bitter winters, one brutal summer and the harsh unforgiving landscape on her own. She was the miracle dog of Tarin Kowt. Sarbi's story, and those of the other brave Australian Army dogs in Afghanistan, will resonate with anyone who understands the power of friendship, and the rewards of unbidden loyalty, trust and devotion. It will appeal to all those who appreciate the selflessness of serving your country and the inherent risks of putting your life on the line for others.
