Usain Bolt against dogs

Olympic legend Usain Bolt is known for his lightning speed on the field. Interestingly, Bolt even tried running against a subway and defeating the technology by winning the race. But some dogs specially trained in the military or for hunting can defeat Usain Bolt by a wide margin.

German Shepherds, often at home as pets or in the military, can run 50 km / h. They have muscular bodies and are super energetic and can even run as fast as an ostrich. A shocking breed on the list is the Jack Russell Terrier, which is small but can run at a top speed of 38 mph. Jack Russell Terrier is trained to hunt foxes. No wonder they can run so fast.
