Remember when you had to take shots with a gun like this, that shot air into your arm along with the medicine?

An alert German shepherd stands poised with his trainer ready for action near a sentry post.

The canine fighter is one of several being trained at the South Vietnamese army dog training center near Saigon.

They receive around 4-6 weeks of training before being assigned to field units for patrolling duty against the Viet Cong.

A U.S. Advisory Group under the command of Capt. Robert H. Stecker is equipped for the care and handling of the dogs.
