In this instance, the hound
has been constructed in a way that represents the government’s control and
manipulation of technology. Originally, firehouse dogs were seen as rescuers
used to locate the weak or injured in an accident. However, the hound has been developed
into a hitman who does society’s dirty work by punishing citizens who stray
from society’s expectations. Compared to the past, firehouse dogs that were conventionally
known to save and help people have now been engineered to kill. With the
introduction of such highly intelligent but heartless robotic dog, technology
has advanced towards a point where it can be manipulated to instill fear and
destruction.
