Dutch shepherds featured in video

A new Postal Service video shows how Dutch shepherd dogs help members of the U.S. armed forces complete a variety of missions.

The dogs offer superior bomb detection and patrol capabilities.

“They’re known as a reliable dog [and] are intelligent and active. They just want to please their handler,” Air Force Staff Sgt. Angel Flores says in the 1-minute, 30-second clip.

The video is one of four that USPS has produced to promote Military Working Dogs, a 20-stamp booklet that was released this month.

The other videos, which also are available on the Postal Service’s YouTube channel, highlight German shepherd, Labrador retriever and Belgian Malinois dogs.
