The big dog sounds like it has a Tecumseh in it.

Little disconcerting... Maybe a little sci fi for me.

I can see a lot of public safety / search and rescue uses for those. I also can see where they would  / could be very intimidating to some. Thanks for sharing.

I read up on these once, they aren't "dogs", they were based off of goats and pack animals, they also want to use them in the military because they can carry a lot of gear and supplies, they can also carry a surprising amount of weight, so I think they could be "bullet proofed" with our much trouble.

Just imagine if there was an animal that the military could use instead... one that could do the same "pack" job, manufactured (reproduced) for free, sourced it's own energy (forage for food+water), but cost millions less in R&D.
