The British Army Put A Bunch Of Awesome-Looking Dogs In The Desert
Dog squad goals.
This is Scooby. He's a working dog with the British Army.
He recently took part in an army exercise in the Jordanian desert.
Temperatures in the desert can reach 40ºC.
With this in mind, Scooby's handlers were taking no chances and kitted him out in all the latest protective gear.
Keeping his paws safe and not burnt, we give you dog "trainers":
He also has goggles and ear protectors, just in case.
Scooby, pictured here with his handler Private Megan Cropper, completed a tour of Afghanistan in 2012.
The 7-year-old is the oldest dog on training deployment in the Jordanian desert.
He's part of a 35-strong dog unit sent out by the British Army on Shamal Storm, the largest training exercise in a decade, designed to test whether the army could successfully mobilise in the event of a full-scale operation.
Obviously, dogs are an integral part of that mobilisation.
