In a world where we are given the choice to get any dog that we want, why not get one that can protect us? There are several different types of rescue dogs that you can get that will protect you. These rescue dogs are also used for firefighters, police men, and other important jobs that consist of needing extra help.
1. Military Dogs
Military dogs are the number one top rescue dog because they are taught how to protect and serve. These dogs do so much as to cuddling to saving lives. Military dogs are used to detect bombs, and weapons. There are currently about 2,500 dogs in the military and about 700 deployed overseas serving the U.S. When dogs are given to the military only about 50% of them make it through military training. Dogs CAN end up with PSD otherwise known as post traumatic stress disorder from experiencing severe conditions during their time in the military.
Patrol Dogs are one of the best type of rescue dogs that have been recorded. Patrol dogs are put through several different obstacles throughout their training. These dogs are much like military dogs but are not sent into the military, instead they are taught to protect and serve the community that they are in. These dogs do everything that military dogs are taught. For example, they are used to detect Arson and trace drugs that are being used to cause some type of harm to someone.
3. Brutis – The Hero
Brutis was 7 years old in dog years when he became a hero. Brutis attacked a snake that was going towards a young child which led Brutis to have a near-death experience from a bite wound that he had gotten from the snake. Brutis ended up getting the National Hero Dog Award which was very much deserved. Brutis not only put this childs life before his but he also made himself a hero that day. He has continued to make peoples hearts melt when they hear his story and he will continue to do so. He is one of the most remarkable “rescue dogs”.
