The private security Army Dog Center company has been launched by retired army personnel in Karachi, Hyderabad, Thatta, Sajawal and Hub, Balochistan, Pakistan Today reported.
ADC will have headquarters in Hyderabad Cantonment with branch offices in Malir Cantonment, Karachi Saddar, Thatta and Sajawal.

ADC official Imtiaz said the company had acquired the sniffer canines, which were trained by the Pakistan army.
"At present we have dogs to search stolen valuables and if anyone wants to avail our services for the detection of explosive materials, the company has hired special sniffing dogs from the Pakistan army for $1,000," he said.
