SAF officials in Afghanistan have confirmed a military dog went missing during a mission in December last year.
US military sources say the dog belonged to a coalition partner and the BBC understands it was working for British forces.
The Taliban earlier released footage of what they claimed was a dog they captured from US troops. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-26062679
