INDogs, Indies, Desis, Strays, whatever you call them, there’s no denying that our desi dogs are no less than their pedigree-eating friends. They’re strong, they’re friendly and overall cuddle bundles. And now, these balls of fur are all set to guard the nation.
गलियों में घूमने वाला आवारा डॉगी, आज #UttarakhandPolice के श्वान दल की शान बना हुआ है। देश में पहली बार यह प्रयोग किया है उत्तराखंड पुलिस ने। सड़कों पर आवारा घूमने वाले डॉगी को पुलिस की ट्रेनिंग दी तो वह नामी नस्लों के लाखों रुपये के दाम वाले डॉगी से कहीं आगे निकला। pic.twitter.com/AbOVXKlYq0

In a first of its kind initiative, the Uttarakhand Police is all set to include desi dogs in the police force. The state police department has already trained one Indie who turned out to be better than all the foreign breeds Uttarakhand police has in its squad. Tweeting about it, Uttarakhand Police wrote, “A dog that used to roam around in the streets is the pride of Uttarakhand Police dog squad. This experiment has been carried out for the first time in the country, by the Uttarakhand police. When police trained this street dog, it turned out to be better than the foreign breed dogs that costs lakhs of rupees”.
Further, the official handle of the Uttarakhand police also tweeted a video of their sniffer squad with the caption, “This sniffer dog squad is the pride of Uttarakhand police. For the first time ever the police has trained a street dog and made the dog a part of this squad as an experiment”.

Well, a street indie dog performing better than all the exquisite foreign breeds is super good news for both the Indian police and the canines. Not only will more homeless dogs find shelter and food, it will also save the police lakhs of rupees that they would otherwise have to spend to get German Shepherds, Great Swiss Mountain Dogs or Labradors.
