It can defend its members from aggression, but can NATO fight off dogs?

The NATO summit about to kick off tomorrow in Bucharest, Romania's capital leaves the city facing its first challenge--stray dogs!  
Bucharest has tons of stray dogs running wild, and officials are worried that they may attack or bite officials on their way to the NATO summit.

The New York Times article where I read about this little intricacy of the upcoming summit mentions that special dogcatchers will be stationed throughout the city to ensure the safety of officials.  

Well, if NATO ambassadors can make it past Bucharest's feisty canines, they have a lot to discuss.  Issues on the agenda include Kosovo, Afghanistan and NATO enlargement.
