Soldiers in Afghanistan want a UK home for dog

Soldiers fear Tangye could become a target for the Taliban
British soldiers in Afghanistan have begun a campaign to save a dog which has been patrolling alongside them.

Tangye the black Labrador has survived gun battles and explosions but troops fear he could end up being killed.

With the increased risk from improvised explosive devices (IEDs), the men of C Company, 3rd Battalion The Rifles, want to find Tangye a home in the UK.

L/Cpl Brent Meheux, from Exeter, said the dog was a "morale booster", but it was too dangerous for him to continue.


It would mean an awful lot to the lads to know he was safe

Tangye was named after a village on Helmand river opposite the forward operating base at Kajaki.

He has been living at the base sinc
