At least 5% of the 650 military dogs used by American combat forces in Iraq and Afghanistan are struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), experts believe, The New York Times reported Thursday.

Like soldiers with the similar disorder, different dogs show different symptoms. Some become hyper-vigilant. Others avoid buildings or work areas that they had previously been comfortable in. Some undergo sharp changes in temperament, becoming unusually aggressive with their handlers, or clingy and timid.

Most crucially, many stop doing the tasks they were trained to perform.
