Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

'Momo', Chihuahua, Recruited For Japanese Police Search-And-Rescue Force

Police recruit chihuahua

In the world of Japan's police dogs, size does not matter.

The BBC is reporting that a tiny Chihuahua beat out several competing canines in the recruitment tests for one of Japan's search-and-rescue teams. Tiny Momo, or 'Peach,' was reportedly able to locate a person in a mere five minutes after sniffing their cap, and was chosen specifically for her size, which allows her to more adeptly navigate small areas during emergency operations, such as rescue efforts after earthquakes.

The seven-year-old Momo, who weighs less than 7 pounds, will begin work in January.

Momo the Chihuahua was one of 32 successful candidates out of 70 dogs and will now join the police in the Japanese prefecture of Nara.
Seeking out a person in five minutes after merely sniffing their cap, she passed her exams with flying colors.
The wispy-haired pooch will be instrumental in disaster rescue operations. In the case of earthquakes it is thought her tiny frame will fit through narrow passages with much more ease than a German Shepherd, which are the most common choice for police K-9 units.
‘Any breed of dog can be entered to become a police dog in the search and rescue division’, but a Nara police spokesperson added that the appointment was ‘quite unusual’.
