800 Military dogs destroyed in ten years.

What choice do they have, they are damned if they do and damned if they dont. The first one that bites a kid will lead to a massive "Why are the military dumping their devil dogs on the street" press campaign and claims for massive compensation payouts, cash I would rather see spent on places like Headly Court etc.

The Telegraph are just tugging the heart strings and showing a cute ickle search dog looking at the camera like a baby seal about to get clubbed to death, I bet they get rehomed.

They haven't shown a have your arm off as soon as look at you attack dog used on fence patrols and the like. They aren't cute, they are trained to take down human beings and they are too agressive to rehome.

I thought it was widely known already that the mental ones that are used to chew on people got the needle.

Hopefully MP Kerry Mcarthy will set an example and take one in.

I would imagine some of the war dogs wouldn't work out too well as domestic pets.

So the Army has destroyed 80 dogs per year, over the last ten years? Whats the score for Battersea over the same period then?
As an ex wagtail op with numerous extra puncture wounds over me from when Mr Attack Dog decided it was my turn for a bit, there is no feckin way that you would ever consider re homing a dog that has been trained to bite. Bear in mind most of these dogs are given up by families, or given over by local pounds because they are nasty pieces of work that are headed for the big needle anyway. The firm just ensures they get an extra 6 - 8 years of food, good treatment and lets them bite people with big sleeves on. Win win situation really.

The fact that you never hear about their handlers begging the MOD to let them take one of these guard dogs in, like they do with search dogs, should give the Telegraph a big clue about them.

Teeth on legs are 'retired' in Cyprus,I believe. AES dogs like Chance come home.






Edited to correct spelling as my IPad thinks it knows better than me!

Couldn't they weigh them down with some weights, then use them to de-mine fields? It'd be far more sporting, and you could paint numbers on them with yellow linesman paint and take bets.

Send them to Istanbul. The city is overrun with cats. The whole place stinks of cat piss. Except the airport.

The vast majority of dogs are rehomed.

Can't remember, but there are 8ish types of MWD.

At the full on psycho end there are 'war dogs'. I am not sure if we are training these or not, but these are proper 'kill' dogs.

Under these tehre are the 'guard dogs' pretty visciou still.

Then 'Police' dogs. Similar to Civvie Police dogs.

Tracker dogs for the jungle

Sniffer dogs

Search dogs.

I know that is only six, but I can't remember anything else. And I think the sniffers and searchers have a few sub categories.

The top two are NOT going to make good pets.

The remainder may... but only if they have the temperament.

RSPCA and other charities ALL kill animals for no better reason than they have no home to go to.

You sick f*ck, cruelty to dogs is just wrong! I'd rather go through pain than see my mut go through it.

I'd rather watch you run through a minefield than a dog. But it's far nicer that you've offered, you dull ****.
Just because your last post mentioned a minefield doesn't mean my mut or I would be running through it, I'd much rather watch my woof chew your arms off :)
