Well the US uses dogs for bomb sniffing patrol and interrogation as witnessed in the Abu garib photos.

Speaking of dogs, I find the rare Native American Indian Dog to be a most fascinating breed. It was almost wiped out by the American settlers. Check out the info on this dog:


Height, Weight
Weight: 55-120 pounds (25-55 kg.)
Height: 23-34 inches (58-67 cm.)



Health Problems
The Native American Indian Dog have no known genetic faults or defects.

The above I find most striking. How many dog breeds do you know that have no genetic faults or defects?

The German Shepherd can get quite a few genetic faults and defects:

Indiscriminate breeding has lead to hereditary diseases such as hip and elbow dysplasia, (be sure both parents have had their hips certified at least OFA good) blood disorders, digestive problems (probably due to nerves), epilepsy, chronic eczema, keratitis (inflammation of the cornea), dwarfism and flea allergies.


Another interesting characteristic of the Native American Indian Dog:

Grooming
The coat of the Native American Indian dog is hypoallergenic. They have no "doggy" smell and those who suffer from pet allergies can usually own these animals. People who suffer from asthma can also find these dogs to be ideal pets. The dogs inner hair coat which sheds only once a year in the spring time was woven into yarn and made an ideal weather proof garment or blanket. Bush the coat during the shedding season to cut back on unwanted hair inside the house.

The Native American Indian Dog is truly fascinating to me.


The Shiloh Shepherd is also interesting to me:

As well as the Czechoslovakian Wolfdog:

I knew I'd learn something on this. This Native American dog with no "doggy smell", I wonder if it can be tracked by scent?
I looked up the links Embryonic listed and found this pic. I had to share it. Even the coldest heart in the world would have to warm up a bit upon seeing this guy.

Yeah, those Native American Indian Dog's have a very unique look to them. Well, the full grown ones at least. :-D And maybe that pup is pretty unique too - look at the eyes, lol. I have to say it: that is one cute pup.

Many genetic faults in dogs have been exacerbated by breeding methods forced on them by humans.

As weaponry, the German Shepherds must rank highly. I've also heard that Airedales were exceptional as guard & attack dogs in Germany during WWII, but have no idea how they'd rate in comparison to Shepherds.

Personally, I feel that both Rottweillers & bull terriers would be very formidable, though aspersions are sometimes cast at their intelligence. Bull terriers are English - I think.

I am sure the US has the best military dogs. Most countries don't allocate enough money to their militaries to spend money on such frivilous endevours.

Frivilous endevours?
You can't think of a good reason to have a dog in the military? They can sense, smell, and hear you way before I could. Plus I like most dogs I meet. Can you say that about people you meet?
You are right about the spending of the US military (DOD). However being #1 has its price, it's not cheap kicking @ss!!!!!!!!!!!

Whats the tally now? 3 votes US and none for the rest of the world!!!!!! God it's great to be an american.
