The Newest Rage In Japan
Everyone knows that police dogs are strong, confident, aware and have a great sense of smell. There are small dogs out there who think they're a big dog and do not get intimidated by anyone. A famous breed like this would be a Chihuahua. This morning, I was listening to the radio, and they had mentioned that Japan had a brand new Chihuahua named Momo (Japanese for peach).
This 7-year-old pooch was one of 32 dogs who passed the search and rescue test in under five minutes by finding a person merely by sniffing her cap. Weighing only 6.6 pounds (3 kg) she is planned to be used in situations when German Shepherds can't fit into smaller spots. She'll also be deployed in earthquake search and rescue missions.
Not The First Chihuahua To Serve and Protect
