It hasn’t been defined exactly what role the Navy Seals dog played in the operation. But it was reported that the dog was critical in hunting down Osama bin Laden in his compound. For security reasons, no further information is forthcoming.
The Belgian Malinois has become very popular as a working dog because it is smaller than the German Shepherd, making it easier to handle.
Most army dogs carry equipment such as protective jackets, cameras, flashing lights for recognition by handlers in low or no light situations. The Navy Seals sometimes attach titanium fangs over their dogs’ teeth to enable them to rip protective armor.
