For some members of the unemployed their days of strolling the streets of India are numbered.

City officials in New Delhi have a plan for the city’s stray dogs. Instead of trying to run them out of town they’re going to put them to work by pairing them up with police animal trainers and making them security dogs. And the concept isn't a crazy one.

While this is the first time the dogs have received formal training; dozens of them are often adopted by people looking for a watchdog for their home or business. Plus the perks go both ways.
