SPONSORED

As a part of Republic Day celebration this year, Army Dogs will be seen marching down the Rajpath.

This year Indian Republic Day is celebrating it's 67th anniversary and about to create a buzz.

After 26 years, the entire country will rise to salute the contribution of the Indian Army's canine division. This decision was taken recently to indulge the Army dog squad on Republic day, following the sacrifice of mansi, a four-year-old Labrador, and her master Bashir Ahmed. We lost them last August at Tangdhar District in Kashmir.
