A hero dog named Rufus—who saved 50 GIs from a suicide bomber in Afghanistan—was honored right here in New York last night. Five hundred guests were on hand at the Animal Medical Center charity event at the American Museum of Natural History, according to the NY Post, and Rufus was toasted by them all. The Centennial Top Dog Gala honors service dogs that go beyond the call of duty. For Rufus, he attacked a Taliban suicide bomber, causing him to detonate a bomb early. He now lives with his handler Sgt. Chris Duke in Atlanta and hopefully he's microchipped.
