Latvia gifts two service dogs to Georgian border guards

The Cabinet of Ministers passed a directive for the Interior Ministry to hand two trained service dogs along with the required equipment to Georgian colleagues, without remuneration. 

The goal of the project is helping reorganize and develop domestic dog-related activities according to EU standards, as well as strengthening and adding to the gene pool of the service dogs to enable further dog breeding efforts.

"Latvia will hand trained dogs to the Border Police of the Republic of Georgia," tweeted the Interior Ministry of Latvia.

Some canines participate in the most complex of combat operations and receive military awards. Scientists have yet to find a better mine-detector than the nose of a dog.
