President Donald Trump on Wednesday, Oct. 30 revealed the name of the working military dog, K-9 injured in a special operation raid that led to the death of the world’s most wanted terrorist leader Baghdadi and announced the dog will be visiting the White House next week.
The valiant dog has spurred speculation regarding its name and breed. President Trump has confirmed the dog’s name is Conan in his tweet.
“Thank you Daily Wire,” the president tweeted, referencing the source of the viral image. “Very cute recreation, but the ‘live’ version of Conan will be leaving the Middle East for the White House sometime next week!”

Gen. Frank McKenzie, who leads U.S. Central Command, said the dog has worked with special operations forces for four years and taken part in about 50 missions, adding such working dogs are “critical members of our forces,” report The Associated Press.
President Trump’s earlier tweet with a doctored image of him giving a Medal of Honor to the heroic canine and an all-caps title AMERICAN HERO went viral on social media. The tweet prompted several reporters from some media to get busy, earning headline from The New York Times.
The staff at The NY Times, who may be the last remaining people in the cosmos unaware that the collusion story is a hoax, are ALL OVER the obviously photo-shopped dog pic. Line up the Pulitzer! #Journalism pic.twitter.com/2IUrf6hP4e

So, WaPo asked my business partner, @jeremydboreing, about our Medal of Honor dog meme. His glorious response is screencapped below. Their report then suggested Jeremy refused to answer questions about the picture. Um, no. We just think you’re being [obscenity] insane. pic.twitter.com/pEyOH96hEr

I’ve requested details from the @WhiteHouse on this photo.
There was no such canine event on today’s @POTUS schedule but there is a Medal of Honor ceremony set here for later today for an active duty Green Beret. https://t.co/NESINT9J4b
