President Zelensky handed a medal to Patron, a mine-sniffing dog, for his efforts.
The two-and-a-half-year-old is credited for assisting minesweepers in the discovery of more than 200 explosive devices.
He has also become as something of a national hero.
"I'd want to recognize the Ukrainian warriors who are now working to remove our country's minefields.
Moreover, working alongside our heroes, including a wonderful little sapper Patron,
who not only assists in defusing explosives but also in teaching our children the necessary safety rules in areas where there is a mine threat."
during the ceremony on Sunday, President Zelensky expressed his gratitude.
Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who was in the nation on Sunday and announced that Canada will be providing additional weaponry and equipment to Ukraine, was also in attendance at the conference.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stroked his pockets as though he were seeking for dog treats when Patron and his owner Myhailo Iliev were awarded with their medals.
Patron has become as a symbol of Ukrainian patriotism, and he appears in films posted on the country's official social media platforms on a regular basis.
A variety of artworks by enthusiasts all around the nation, ranging from paintings to knitted animal reproductions, have been created in his honor.
