[ISTGINMTSU] Der Hundenminen!!

Anti-tank dogs, also known as dog mines, were starving dogs with explosives harnessed to their back and trained to seek food under enemy tanks and armoured vehicles. By doing so, a small wooden lever would be tripped, detonating the explosives.

Note: Despite my amusing title, this was an invention of the Soviet army, not the German army. The WP page says the Soviets actually used them against German tanks.
