Conan, the military dog famous for having lead U.S. infantry to the location of now-dead ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, was honored for his service at the White House on Monday afternoon.

Praising the "flawless attack" carried out by U.S. forces, Trump said that Conan had received a plaque and a medal for his service. The president called the dog "incredible" at the event.

"If you open your mouths, you will be attacked. You want to be very, very careful," the president joked with the assembled crowd.

Trump had previously referred to Conan as an "American hero."
