K9 Bullet-proof Vests

We're all familiar with at least one famous crime fighting dog, Rin Tin Tin, Hong Kong Phooey, McGruff. But did you ever see any of them wearing a bullet-proof vest? It seems that body armor company International Armor has come out with bullet-proof vest for police dogs. After all, these dogs are often the ones intercepting the perpetrator and therefore putting their life a risk.

The vests cost from $600 to $800 each and protect against bullets as well as stabbing weapons. To help defray the costs the Vest a Dog Network was formed. Check out their site or your local chapter's site to find out how to support these crime fighting pooches.
