(KFTK) — A four-legged furry creature played a very crucial role in a top-secret U.S. military operation in Syria on Sunday.

The Belgian Malinois pup is being hailed as a hero in the effort that ultimately resulted in the Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi's death.

Trump tweeted a photo of the pup Monday saying, “We have declassified a picture of the wonderful dog (name not declassified) that did such a GREAT JOB in capturing and killing the Leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi!”
