Patron is a Ukrainian 2-year-old mine sniffing dog that has sniffed 236 Russian explosive devices that failed to detonate up to 8th May 2022 during 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine. Patron is a Jack Russell Terrier. Such a cute dog!
Here is my sketch of Patron:

On 8th May 2022 Patron has received an award for his service from President Zelenskiy.
"Today, I want to award those Ukrainian heroes who are already clearing our land of mines. And together with our heroes, a wonderful little sapper - Patron - who helps not only to neutralize explosives, but also to teach our children the necessary safety rules in areas where there is a mine threat", said president Zelenskyy after the press conference.
