And it is an all-out onslaught of adorable. 

Dozens of puppies of multiple breeds run and play in the video, but these aren't just any canines.

Dogs from the Breeding Center are among the most decorated in Russia, a country that prides itself on its superior military hounds.

More than 3,000 dogs are employed in the Russian armed forces.
