Hero dog Shimanski honoured as four-tour US Marine Corps veteran for ‘unwavering courage’

Washington, D.C. – A US multi-purpose canine (MPC) Belgian Malinois has been honoured for serving four tours of duty with the US Marine Corps and performing at the highest standard.

Shimanski was deployed to Jordan, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Somalia during his seven-year career and received the Animals in War and Peace Medal of Bravery for his service, an award created in 2019 to honour service animals who have gone above and beyond the call of duty. 

Retired Marine Special Operations Command (MARSOC) MPC Shimanski was honoured during the third annual Animals in War and Peace Medal Ceremony in Washington DC, alongside other animal heroes.
