The legendary Patron is now with an award: Zelensky presented the sapper dog with a medal for services to Ukraine
Volodymyr Zelenskyy presented an award to a dog of the Jack Russell Terrier breed named Patron, who is considered a symbol of resistance to Russian aggression, reports TheGuardian.
The cartridge is the official symbol of the International Focal Point for Humanitarian Demining. It weighs about 4 kilograms, which means that its body weight will not exceed 5 kilograms, which is also safe for detecting anti-personnel mines.

Patron, a two-and-a-half-year-old Jack Russell, was presented with the award by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky at a ceremony in Kyiv.
The terrier sniffs out Russian mines and explosives in the northeastern city of Chernihiv and acts as the mascot of the country's state emergency service.

“Today I want to reward those Ukrainian heroes who are already demining our land,” Zelensky said in a statement after the ceremony. “And along with our heroes, I want to award a wonderful little sapper — Patron — who helps not only to defuse explosives, but also to teach our children the necessary safety rules in areas where there is a threat of mines.”
