Who was the first American to go into suborbital flight and which rockets was used?
The first animal to make a suborbital space flight from American soil was Albert, a rhesus monkey. He flew on a V2 rocket and suffocated on his way. Another monkey named Albert II made a successful journey, but died from impact on its return. The first Human American that made a sub orbital flight was Alan Shepard in May 5, 1961, who later Commanded Apollo 14. He flew in a Redstone rocket during his sub-orbital flight.

What is the name of the first space dog?

Laika, became the first living Earth-born creature (other than microbes) in orbit, aboard Sputnik 2 on November 3, 1957 Space is assumed to be beyond the oxygen layer. Laika was the first dog to orbit the space. Sub-orbital flight is not an orbiting or space voyage, which needs to surpass the oxygen and ozone layer to be called space.

What year did Alan Shepard make his first flight?
On May 5, 1961, Shepard piloted the Freedom 7 mission and became the second person, and the first American, to travel into space. He was launched by a Redstone rocket, and unlike Gagarin's 108 minute orbital flight, Shepard stayed on a ballistic trajectory suborbital flight-a flight which carried him to an altitude of 116 statute miles and to a landing point 302 statute miles down the Atlantic Missile Range. Unlike Gagarin, whose flight was strictly automatic, Shepard had some control of Freedom 7, spacecraft attitude in particular. The launch, return from space and subsequent collection by helicopter were seen live on television by millions.
