Original packaging for a dog??

So it still has to be in the placenta?

Only the government could post a solicitation that takes fifteen minutes to scroll through and not manage to describe WTF they want to buy. Live animals, not raised for food and green dogs? I still have no idea what they want.
Worse than reading the coded notes on a RFQ for industrial equipment for the Seawolf.

Using the term "green dog" usually refers to little or no training. I assume they will be detection or dual-purpose K-9's. The government usually has a set training method that they employ for dogs.

Also once a certain method of detection type training is put on a dog sometimes it can be hard to re-train for your specified criteria. Hence why they would want green dogs.

"Green" dogs. A dog that has no prior training and will be trained for a specific task. Narcotic detection, explosive detection, etc. Wish I had 88 dogs to sell.

Makes sense when explained. I was trying to figure out what they were going to do with 88 dyed poodles.
