USA State Department well known to provides “civilian foreign aid and development assistance” to countries around the globe.

One of aid and assistants is sending “bomb sniffing dogs” to combat terrorism to several countries.

Yes, there are 10 countries had accepted well training sniffing dogs:
- Bahrain
- Egypt
- Indonesia
- Lebanon
- Mexico
- Morocco
- Nepal
- Jordan
- Oman
- Thailand

The Transport Security Administration (TSA) said that cost for training a bomb sniffing dog is very expensive.

Cost per dog for training is US$ 218,000, and take care for dog welfare could be US$ 158,00 per year.

More than 180 dogs are sent to at least 10 countries as mentioned above. Unfortunately, these canines are not treated well in certain countries, lead to poor conditions and even death.

In Jordan, bomb sniffing dogs are found the worst. 10 unhealthy dogs are died from 2008 to 2016.

Sniffing dogs are facing skin diseases and overweight in Indonesia. The relate agency in Mexico has no welfare and health records for dogs.

The questions then:
- how the unhealthy and poor condition dogs be able to detect explosive devices and deterring terrorism?

- why US state department had no oversight committee or monitor during dogs deployment in partner countries?


Finally, what do you think? Do you have any suggestions?

  3. Turns my stomach... Unfortunately government agencies don't seem to be willing to respond to issues like this unless they are exposed by print or online news agencies, PETA, ... It is probably "all about the money" and zero about decency or responsibility.

  6. Not a good situation! They only do something when they are exposed. Where's PETA? They seem to be everywhere else.

  8. Dogs which die because of malnutrition is a not acceptable situation, especially when they are sent from a government.

  9. How sad that dogs are treated so badly and die from malnutrition. I don't have any suggestions but I think if we thought about dogs as very precious and loving friends situation would be better. Or maybe I am naive...

  11. I knew they were expensive to train, but no idea they were that expensive. I also wonder how culture works with these dogs. Many Muslims look at dogs with contempt and Jordan and Indonesia are mostly Muslim countries.

    1. in case of Indonesian Muslim, they use dogs for hunting....military and police men, some of them have dogs as pets...and there are special forces with dogs.

      This program is run by state department, provided dogs for civilians in some Muslim countries without guideline how to take cares dogs....I think that the problems.
