The Hammer

Marine military working dog Thor

Thor, a yellow Labrador retriever, who is a military working dog with Company K, 3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, from Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, Calif., recently completed Enhanced Mojave Viper predeployment training with his handler.

Thor looks like a sweetheart. While not trained for protection (I’m just assuming here) Thor would be trained really well for explosives. Watching these dogs work on a scent trail that people cannot see, smell, taste or touch is an amazing thing to do.
