Meet Conan, the Hero Dog That Helped Take Down ISIS

We are getting more details about the dog that rode with the U.S. Army Special Forces in Syria to take down the ISIS leader Sunday night.

The hero dog — of the Belgian Malinois breed — is a female named Conan, and she chased Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi into a tunnel, resulting in the terrorist leader blowing himself up. A senior Pentagon source clarified that she was named after the comedian Conan O’Brien — not the famed fictional character, Conan the Barbarian.

On Monday, President Trump praised the canine on Twitter:

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!
