Museum hires toy poodles as guard dogs

Poodle guard dog

JAPAN — A museum in Japan has two new, adorable museum guards.

Meet Karin and Fuga; the pair has been tapped to guard a new exhibit at a museum in western Japan.

The dogs received their marching orders Tuesday at a special ceremony.

The pooches already have plenty of experience; they were certified as police dogs last year.

Since then they’ve taken on several tasks, including a stint on the traffic beat and taking part in a safety awareness campaign.
