Here Is A Shoulder-Mounted K9 On Patrol. He Has His Glow Belt On And Is Ready To Go…

Reddit user wirthit has shared this extraordinary image with us under the title Standard issue shoulder mounted K9. It is one of the most impressive images I’ve seen in a long while.

Unfortunately, wirthit has offered no details at all, so we don’t know the name either of the soldier or the dog, but I guess the image speaks for itself.

I did, however, look up some other images of war dogs and thought I’d share them with you.

So, the extra images are from National Geographic’s The Dogs of War series from earlier this year. As the magazine put it in the article, “Out in front of America’s troops, combat canines and their handlers lead the way onto the most dangerous battlefields on Earth”.

Now here are the awesome images.
