Dog breeds like Labradors, German Shepards, and Dobermans make for amazing army dogs. With incredible senses of sight and smell, they are the perfect guard dogs who are able to spot danger quicker than any soldier. However, they aren’t the only breeds which have such qualities. Our very own Indie dogs can be quite an asset.
For those of you who don’t know, Indie dogs can adapt to different kinds of weather conditions, have noteworthy protective instincts, and also have very good sight and smell abilities. Since they are mostly used to staying outdoors and can fend for themselves, they have a cautious temperament.
Uttarakhand Police has recognised these qualities of Indie dogs and has, for the first time, inducted them into the force.
In a tweet posted by the official Twitter account of Uttarakhand Police, they announced that Indie dogs are being trained to join the force and that their abilities surpass foreign breeds.
Read the tweet here:
गलियों में घूमने वाला आवारा डॉगी, आज #UttarakhandPolice के श्वान दल की शान बना हुआ है। देश में पहली बार यह प्रयोग किया है उत्तराखंड पुलिस ने। सड़कों पर आवारा घूमने वाले डॉगी को पुलिस की ट्रेनिंग दी तो वह नामी नस्लों के लाखों रुपये के दाम वाले डॉगी से कहीं आगे निकला। pic.twitter.com/AbOVXKlYq0
