Bomb-Sniffing Dog Returns After Being Lost in Afghanistan for 14 Months

You can't keep a good bomb-sniffing dog down. Sabi, a sniffer dog that got lost when an Australian unit was ambushed in Afghanistan 14 months ago, has been found:

The black labrador bitch was with a joint Australian-Afghan patrol that was ambushed in Uruzgan province in September 2008.

Nine Australian soldiers, including Sabi's trainer, were wounded in the exchange.

After the battle there was no sign of the dog, and months of searching failed to find her. Sabi was officially declared Missing In Action.

An Australian military spokesman said it would probably never be known exactly what had happened to Sabi in the 14 months she was missing, but the fact that she was in good condition indicated she had been cared for by someone.
