Since ancient times, an extraordinary dog has been inseparably next to a person. An awe-inspiring companion, helper, guide, and rescuer. A faithful four-legged friend. With the beginning of the invasion of the Rashists on Ukrainian lands, a new star appeared. For your attention, the mascot of Ukraine's Civil Service of emergencies - an explosives-sniffing dog named Patron.
Cute Jack-Russell Terrier, since birth, dreamed of eating delicious food, chasing a ball on the lawn, lying on the back when the tummy is scratched, and thinking that the dog's life has been successful. However, life has made adjustments, and the dog Patron helps to find and defuse explosives. It seems he is helped by the souls of sniffers-perfumers who worked in different parts of Ukraine factories where fragrances were created. Volodymyr Zelensky awarded him with the "Order of Courage" for his search and neutralization work of unexploded ammunition left by Russian troops. Patron is also actively involved in charity, visiting patients of the Okhmatdyt Children's Hospital in Kyiv. Due to its viral popularity, Patron's dangerous work and charitable performances were called "an unexpected weapon of social networks" for Ukraine.

Patron has found more than 500 such devices.
Patron is also active in charity work, making visits to patients at Okhmatdyt children's hospital in Kyiv. Due to his viral fame, dangerous work, and charity appearances, Patron has been described as an "unexpected social media weapon" for Ukraine.
