BSF's sniffer dog pregnant in Meghalaya: gave birth to three children, there will be a court of inquiry; his caretaker will be punished for negligence
A female sniffer dog of BSF (Border Security Force) deployed at a border post of the Indo-Bangladesh border became pregnant. She has given birth to three puppies (kids). According to BSF rules, dogs on duty cannot become pregnant, yet they became pregnant. BSF has issued orders for its Court of Inquiry. His caretaker, who is found guilty in the investigation, will be punished.
Along with BSF jawans, sniffer dogs are also deployed at major check posts. The job of these dogs is to help them catch suspicious things by smelling them. When dogs are pregnant, their sense of smell becomes weak. In such a situation, she is not able to do her work on the post.
This female dog was posted at the outpost of the India-Bangladesh border. In such a situation, her work must have been affected due to her being pregnant. That's why BSF has made a rule that whatever sniffer dog will be on such important postings, they should not be allowed to become pregnant.
Dogs recruited in BSF are trained for their work, they are taught to alert on what kind of things they smell. But their maintenance is the responsibility of their caretaker. The caretaker has to take care that he does not come in contact with another dog. In such a case, if a female dog becomes pregnant, its caretaker will be responsible for it.
BSF's female dog named Lalsi 43 BN gave birth to three puppies on December 5 at BOP Baghmara. As soon as the BSF officers came to know about the dog's pregnancy, they handed it over to their veterinary wing. She was delivered under Wing's supervision.
BSF has ordered Deputy Commandant Ajit Singh, posted in Shillong, to investigate under what circumstances and due to the carelessness of the caretaker, the lazy dog became pregnant. The caretaker found negligent will be punished as per BSF rules.
