Chandigarh, September 9

After having made dogs an integral part of the force, the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) is now setting up a retirement home for its K-9 veterans — who are no longer fit for active duty — where they can be taken care of.

"A case for establishing a retirement home for our dogs is under process at the force headquarters and it is expected to come up at the ITBP's National Dog Training Centre at Bhanu this year," an officer said.

At present, dogs that are no longer used for operational or security duties due to old age or injury are sent to an ITBP unit where veterinary care is available, where they can pass the rest of their life peacefully.

The ITBP uses dogs for border patrolling as well as in internal security duties. Besides tracking humans, they are also trained to storm into rooms and vehicles, neutralise and restrain intruders and armed persons, detect explosives and narcotics and assist in search and rescue operations.
