A Few Good Dogs.
Military dogs are not uniquely German Shepherds or Belgian Malinois, although they are plentiful. There are Labradors, Springer Spaniels, Beagles, and others as well. What is required is that they be “Good Dogs.” Sound instincts and physique, plus solid temperaments are what is necessary. For the breeds that are born to “work” in some manner, there is usually a place for them in some aspect of military scouting and security work. They relish the routines and the handler companionship. Take a look, you might find your dog represented here. Note: the “music” accompanying the Link may be a bit grating on you, as it was to me, so suggest you mute the sound while reading the items on the DOD website.Hat Tip to Florantista, and a Thimble of Remy Martin 1738 to Patrick at Clarity and Resolve.
