The puppy world is not limited to playpens and looks gorgeous. In recent years, some have written history through birth. Puppies are also handpicked for careers such as bug snoopers or police dogs (because they are clones of the best dog of the police).
In addition, charities continue to rescue the descendants of Chernobyl's abandoned dogs, while law enforcement agencies must keep up with drug dealers and burglars want puppies for the wrong profit.
10 Tumbles Wheelchair
When a litter of puppies was born in 2015, a man was completely different. He was healthy and sweet in the world, but his two front legs were missing. For some reason, they just never evolved.
Although most were a major physical challenge, his caregivers decided not to put the newborn puppy to sleep. He was called Tumbles. When the Terrier Beagle mix was six weeks old, it was time to make it a little more mobile.
In Ohio, friends of the Shelter Dogs decided he could get by on wheels. They worked with the Ohio University Innovation Center and designed a small wheelchair for Tumbles. After the custom-made device was printed in 3D, the fluffy puppy was strapped in and he took his first steps. 
9 Exo-K9 mask
In 2017, a puppy named Loca had a bad figure encounter with another dog. The roughly four-month-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier suffered severe bite injuries to the head and neck. She was brought to the Davis School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of California.
The puppy was diagnosed with a broken jawbone, a cheekbone, and a severely damaged temporomandibular joint. Efforts to heal the puppy affected both veterinarians and engineers. Before the Loca incident, the veterinary school created a very special mask with the UC Davis College of Engineering. The exo-K9 exoskeleton is the future of treating facial fractures in pets.
Like a human cast, the Exo K9 mask works by holding the healing bones in place. However, the mask is 3-D printed to suit the individual skull shape of each dog. In a CT scan, the head of Loca was measured and the resulting exoskeleton was the first time that the invention was applied to a patient. Within months, Staffie's injuries were well on the way to recovery. 
8 Chernobyl's Puppies
In 1986, the world watched in horror as the largest nuclear disaster occurred in Chernobyl. The Ukrainian nuclear power plant melted and forced workers and locals to flee. The authorities fined the residents, but brutally drove away all the dogs desperately trying to follow their owners.
With many owners knowing what would probably happen, many owners made written requests to prevent the military from killing their animals. However, soldiers went to the disaster area and shot all the animals they could find. People could be pulled out, but the authorities had no time for pets and livestock that could be contaminated.
Remarkably, some dogs survived the radiation, soldiers, wolves, and wildlife. They formed packs and bred puppies. Today, hundreds of dogs roam the area and even live in the power plant.
In recent years, a charity from the United States has entered and sterilized hundreds of strays. The first 200 wild puppies were caught in 2018. The puppies were quarantined and prepared for adoption in the United States. 
7 The Beetle Beetles
The museums organize showcases, research and war on insects. The latter are a silent but devastating problem. Bugs do not care if artifacts are irreplaceable. They only want to chew wood, paper and textiles.
The Boston Museum of Fine Arts has several protocols to combat errors. In 2018, they acquired a different method – and it attracted more attention than some of their art collections. Riley, the puppy, was not only enchanting, but also had a strange task: he examined incoming artifacts on unwanted hitchhikers.
Training the Weimaraner as a "new inspector" would allow the puppy to locate moths, beetles and other pests. Should the silver dog notice a hint of something, he will use the staff to examine the item more closely.
Weimaraner make excellent drug dancers or bomb detection dogs, but Riley has to show the world if the breed is the world is also suitable for insect inspection. If so, more museums could get their own boys. 
6 The Manchester Robbery
In 2018, several men broke into a residence in Manchester. It was not an accidental crime. They knew exactly what they wanted. They found the owner Leeanne Corbett at home and demanded the puppies of the family's French bulldog. When her three children were present and a robber held a knife to her pregnant belly, Corbett did not dare to resist.
The robbery was perhaps successful, but the thieves had a nonsense. A Living French Bulldog Puppy – Focus "Life" – can be sold for over £ 1,200 (about $ 1,500). Instead of waiting until the litter was weaned, they stole the puppies one day old.
The eight Bulldogs had been born four days early and were in an incubator, which was also stolen. Some days later someone took the litter from an animal hospital. Unfortunately, six puppies had died. Corbett believed that the robbers saw their birth announcement on Facebook and decided to steal it. 
5 The first IVF litter
In vitro fertilization (IVF) may be old news in humans, but the fertility technique produced the first litter of puppies in 2015. It could be excused It sounds a bit boring, but that's a great achievement. Since the 1970s, researchers have failed to produce such boys.
The recent attempt had to overcome difficult obstacles. The researchers had to carefully harvest the eggs at the right time and prepare the sperm for fertilization, which is usually done by the female tracts.
From donor material of beagle and cocker spaniels, 19 embryos were produced in the laboratory. After implantation in a surrogate, only seven reached full maturity.
The research was not just about proving that puppy IVF is possible. After the kinks are ironed out, the technique can be used in animal welfare. In this way, more puppies of endangered dogs and rare breeds can be born than with the natural breed. 
4 Colombian Drug Mules
Some people exploit puppy sexuality in the worst possible way. In 2005, Andres Lopez Elorez fled when around two dozen suspected drug traffickers were arrested in Colombia. He was a vet who worked for the Colombian drug ring.
His role was terrible. Elorez was tasked with preparing puppies as drug mules. The boys were implanted with liquid heroin and flown on commercial flights to New York. Upon arrival, the drugs were fatally cut from the belly of the animals.
Elorez escaped the law for 10 years. But in 2015 he was captured in Spain. The 38-year-old veterinarian was extradited to the United States to fight human trafficking and conspiracy. It is not known how many puppies died as Elorez medication mules. Ironically, ten puppies were found in the first raid in 2005, and one became a narcotic dog in the Colombian police. 
3 Super Justice Pup
In December 2018, a puppy was born in China. She took her first breath in a Beijing lab and was named Kunxun. The little Kunxun was a Kunming Wolfhound. As the name suggests, they are Wolf-dog hybrids, which are favored by the police and military.
When the puppy was three months old, she outperformed everyone else in aptitude tests. It was exactly what their creators had expected. Kunxun was a clone. Her "mother" and 99.9 genetic match was a beagle called Huahuangma. The seven-year-old's nose helped clarify several murders and made her the pride of Yunnan Province Police.
Training a dog in China takes five years and costs about $ 60,000. Should the puppy show Huahuangma's brilliance, these five years could be drastically reduced. In fact, Kunxun's progress predicts that she would end her training in drug and crowd control within 10 months. If Kunxun stands out, the project could lead to mass production of puppies from high performance bull dogs. 
2 History-Making Clones
In 2015, a boxer named Dylan died. His devastated owners turned to a unique animal corporation in Korea. The Sooam Biotech Research Foundation had already produced over 700 pet specimens, but Dylan's case was different.
The limit for DNA extraction from the donor after death was five days. The boxer had been dead for nearly two weeks. When the British pair lost £ 67,000 ($ 100,000) per intervention, Sooam gave a try.
The company made history when it succeeded in making two pregnant surrogates, each with a single puppy. Dylan's owners were present to see the birth of the first over the cesarean section. They also wanted to welcome the second puppy, but the little boxer surprised everyone when he arrived a day earlier than expected.
His natural birth went well. All but the RSPCA were happy. The cloning of pets remains controversial. Such animals are at greater risk for health problems. Cloning also involves painful procedures and high mortality rates before scientists can replicate a useful clone. 
1 First Identical Twins
In 2015, a South African family noticed that their dog had difficulty giving birth to a child. The Irish Wolfhound was admitted to the hospital by Kurt De Cramer for a Caesarean section. When he started the procedure, De Cramer noticed a bump in the uterus. He removed a puppy from the stomach. To the surprise of the veterinarian, there is another sibling that shares the placenta of the first-born puppy.
This refers to identical twins in humans. Suddenly De Cramer became aware of what he was looking at and his assistants had the twins photographed while still attached to their placenta. In the meantime, he brought five more puppies (each with its own placenta).
Although the veterinarian thought the two puppies were twins, others were not so sure. Identical twins should be mirror images, but the white markings of the two puppies were not the same.
When they were two weeks old, blood tests and rubber smears confirmed that they were the first identical twin dogs. Her unique white hair may be due to tiny genetic differences.
