There were dozens of dogs found at the Kabul International Airport after the U.S. troops evacuated Afghanistan. Some people speculated that they were military working dogs; however, the Pentagon denies such claims.
But no matter where these dogs came from, they require some help. Thus, airport security guards volunteered to take care of and train them. The dogs are now receiving water, food, and love on the airport grounds.
The dogs would have been safer if they had escaped Afghanistan. But for now, they are in good hands, and they love their new roles.
Hewad Azizi, who works as a security guard at the airport, said they found the canines in U.S. Military-controlled and Afghanistan police-controlled areas. However, they could not confirm who owned the dogs.
Now, the important thing is to care for the dogs and ensure that they are safe. Azizi and his coworkers are training them, with most of the canines excelling at detecting bombs.
If it weren’t for the kind security guards, the poor dogs could have died from hunger, thirst, or heat.
According to Azizi, his favorite among the dogs is Rex, a Belgian Malinois, who excels at sniffing out packages that smell like explosives. Each time he correctly sniffs out a bomb scent, his trainers reward him with extra playtime.
Mohamad Mourid, a K9 supervisor, said they have different dogs, including narcotic or drug dogs and bomb dogs. He said they are training with various materials with the dogs.
Currently, the said airport is closed for repairs; however, these canines will begin working as the airport gradually reopens. They will assist with security; in return, they get to be taken care of and loved by their rescuers and trainers.
The security guards ensure to feed and provide water for these working dogs. Now, these abandoned canines will get the respect that they rightfully deserve.
