    Three stray mutts -- Rufus, Target and Sasha -- were living near Sgt. Chris Duke and other US troops on a remote military base in Afghanistan on Feb. 22 when they spotted the bomber outside a building where 50 soldiers were sleeping.
    Rufus bit the Taliban terrorist on the leg as Target and Sasha barked furiously.
    Several soldiers -- unaware of the imminent danger -- tried shouting down the mutts. But the dogs continued barking, spooking the bomber into prematurely setting off 24 pounds of C4 explosives before he could get through the door -- and killing himself.

    Rufus and Target were seriously wounded. Tragically, Sasha died.
