There was at least one four-legged Navy SEAL member among the group that killed Osama bin Laden.

Just like their human counterparts, the NAVY SEALs' elite canine team is kept under a shroud of secrecy.

Out of the 3,000 dogs that train for the team, only a handful make it to the elite status. The highly trained team is used to find explosives and subdue targets.

Elite canine members are fitted with waterproof body armor, infrared cameras and ear bugs to hear remote commands.

It is also rumored that broken teeth are replaced with titanium.
