Not only are dogs magical fluff balls that fill our lives with love, but they can also be hardworking members of society with real jobs!
Companion animals are trained to provide a number of different services, including helping the seeing impaired, providing emotional support to those suffering from PTSD, and even helping those with epilepsy during a seizure, to name a few.
Their calming and comforting presence has been shown to improve mental health.
Not only do service animals help those in need during their daily lives, they also become a valued member of their families.
Another group of working pups are those trained to assist police officers and other members of law enforcement.
Police dogs, also known as “K-9″‘s, are trained to locate drugs and explosives, identify crime scene evidence and find missing people.
Dogs have fought in wars alongside humans for centuries.
Military working dogs have been used to fight the enemy, relay messages, track and detect dangerous explosives and warn of an enemy’s impending attack.
So when we first heard about a dog-rating Twitter account posting a photo of a working dog, we figured it would be cute, but nothing we hadn’t seen before.
Boy, were we wrong.
The heroic pup has a very important job to do, and when you see her in uniform you might just lose your mind from the absolute cuteness overload.
You’ve been warned.
