Bravest dogs in history: Smoky...Smoky This 4-pound Yorkshire terrier lived large. Smoky was found in the jungle of New Guinea and soon was purchased by an American soldier, Bill Wynne. Wynne trained her, according to the Yorkie Doodle Dandy website, and the tiny, 7-inch dog accompanied him for two years during World War II. While abroad, she entertained troops and earned honors for her bravery, saving Wynne's life on at least one occasion by warning him of incoming fire on a transport ship.
Smoky the Yorkshire Terrier. A companion to an American soldier in World War II, Smoky was the ultimate in adorable war dog-ness. This cute ball of fluff went on combat flights and even parachuted out of a tree with her own special parachute. Credited with 12 combat missions and awarded 8 battle stars, Smoky also appears to have been the first recorded therapy dog after her service in WWII.
Smoky (c. 1943 – 21 February 1957), a Yorkshire Terrier, was a famous war dog who served in World War II. According to an Animal Planet investigation, Smoky was the first therapy dog of record. Her service in this arena began in July 1944 at the 233rd Station Hospital, in New Guinea, where she accompanied nurses to see the incoming battlefield casualties from the Biak Island invasion. Smoky is [also] credited with beginning a renewal of interest in the once obscure Yorkshire Terrier breed.
