Cool dog shoes

Rescue dogs working with Chinese firefighters have been given leather shoes. [The} Chaoyang fire brigade in Beijing city have fitted them with shoes to protect their paws.

“It’s mainly to protect their feet, not for fashion,” a fire brigade spokesman told the Beijing Times. The soles are made of leather, while the uppers are made from tough, fire-proof fabric.

The department says the dogs’ working environments are usually very dangerous, and their feet are easily cut open or burnt.
