Arrow, a five-year-old German Shepherd, is part of a crack unit of dogs that parachute with their handlers in the fight against poaching.

"He likes parachuting a lot more than I do," says Henry Holsthyzen, his handler. The two recently made it into the Guinness World Records when Arrow became the world's first anti-poaching dog to use a parachute.

"The bond between Arrow and me is very special," says Henry."Where I go, he goes."
