World War II Vets Honored at Dog Show

By  | 

A group of veterans gives new meaning to "top dogs." The vets were honored Wednesday at the Doberman Pincher Club of America's show at the Expocentre.

The breed was used in service during World War II. World War II vets say the breed was exceptionally good at spotting ambushes in the war.

The dogs were also used to lead patrols into unknown territory during combat. Organizers say the dogs are often not given the credit they deserve.

This year's show celebrates the 100th year the Doberman Pincher has been in the United States.
