News. After a gap of 26 years, an Army dog squad drawn from the Remount Veterinary Corps (RVC) took part, along with their handlers in this year's Republic day Parade: Army puts to sleep its dogs if it is unable to keep up with the rigour of its duty, even if it has a few years of life ahead. The Army generally uses Labradors, German shepherds and Belgian shepherds, depending on the altitudes and weather, besides the nature of the assignment that may include routine patrol to explosives detection. It is a normal practice to euthanise dogs when they are found to be unfit to perform the assigned duty. They cannot be rehabilitated after they retire because of security concerns. Since they are familiar with the base location, it is not ideal that they end up in civilian hands is the reason sited officially. The actual reason for euthanasia is mainly because if the retired dogs were rehabilitated with NGOs and animal welfare organisations would not be able to maintain these dogs with the kind of facilities the Indian Army provided them. According to Prevention of Cruelty to Animal Act, ordinary dogs could be euthanised only in rare cases, like if they suffer from an incurable disease. But euthanasia of unfit army dogs is a policy decision of the Union government. A day is not far off for the government to adopt the same euthanasia for the retired soldiers to ease the government's pension burden. God and the Soldier, we adore, In time of danger, not before. The danger passed and all things righted, God is forgotten and the Soldier slighted. ~Rudyard Kipling
