I remember watching on the History Channel how many lives these dogs saved in the Vietnam conflict, only to be left behind as extra weight in the hustle out of the country.

Pet Profiles

A lot of the dogs going to Vietnam were donated pets. Afterward, they were treated like equipment and left. Some probably got eaten.

The Marines used Dobermans on Iwo Jima, they called them devil-dogs.
