Some of these might surprise you, but one thing is for sure... their bite is much worse than their bark.
"Man's best friend" has been by our side for around 10,000 years. Throughout that time we have used dogs for hunting partners, scavengers, emotional support, transportation of beer, sheep herding, night watch, pulling sleds, rat extermination, and a perfect scapegoat with which to blame for our own silent but deadly farts.
Dogs have many uses within the military, too. They've received medals, and they have saved the lives of countless service members. You may just think German Shepard's have solely led the charge in canine use in the military, but—as this list will show—we have more furry friends out there on the battlefield than you might think.
