Michael and Buster -- Service Dog
Buster is now retired from the RAF after surviving five tours of duty, braving bombs and bullets. He has returned home a military hero and is now enjoying retirement at home with RAF Police Sergeant Michael Barrow who he worked with tirelessly.
While in service, Buster saved countless lives by sniffing out explosive vests, leading to the arrests of two suicide bombers. He joined his comrades repeatedly on foot patrols through the poppy fields, hunting Taliban insurgents and tracking down booby trap bombs left behind for British and American troops.
Since Buster's Friends for Life nomination, Michael has been redeployed on a tour of duty. Flight Sergeant Phil Brown will be present at Crufts on behalf of Michael.
