The army in India has raised an Army of Dogs of 12,000, composed of breeds such as Labradors and German and Belgian Shepherds. Instead of traditional military methods of (figuratively) smoking out militants from jungles, the new Dog Army will (literally) sniff out the terrorists in their hideouts.
Insurgents have been avoiding detection by using jungle warfare and by establishing camps in remote and difficult terrains. The idea for the Dog Army came after trained dogs were successful in various military operations. Once the proposal was approved, the Dog Army was raised and trained over a period of months and is now ready for deployment.
They have already shown they can save lives by sniffing out explosives and deeply dug mines in over 110 instances.
