We all are familiar with the foreign breeds like German Shepard, Great Swiss Mountain and Labradors in the Indian army but for the first time ever Indian Army is planning to induct Desi breed or homebred  Mudhol hound into the defence forces.

   

Mudhol hound is known for its stamina and fighting spirit, they also have, reputedly, sharper and quicker reflexes than their foreign counterparts.

It is a cross breed between the Persian and Turkish dogs, some people also address it as Caravan Hound, it was first introduced in the Deccan Plateau of western India by Central Asia and Arabia. It was mostly used for hunting and guarding. The selective breed of Mudhol Hound was bred by the Ghorpade King’s.
