Up-Armored… K-9s?

Why not?  We wear armor in combat, so why shouldn’t man’s best friend have some, too?

Bulletproof Dogs

Snippet from the article:

The armor itself protects against shots from 9mm and .45 magnum handguns. Slater is a veteran police dog trainer and built the first vest after a prison riot. He realized he wore full riot gear, while his K9 partner, Olaf, was basically naked. So he started making vests. The weave technology catches bullets or ice picks like a mitt wrapping around a baseball; knives and sharpened screw drivers wielded by prisoners require tighter weaves.

Not sure what a .45 magnum round is, but it’s still cool.

Let’s go, Krypto!
