Re: My kind of Dog
It's a total hoax:
From Snopes is this bit from a representative of the Arizona Law Enforcement Canine Association:
"The dog's name is not Brutus; in fact, his name is "Spike", and he was never a military working dog. Spike is a retired Police Service Dog who served honorably during the years 2001 to 2007 with the Scottsdale Police Department's K-9 Unit in Scottsdale, Arizona under his handler, Officer Scott DiIullo (who is still with the K-9 Unit and working with a new K-9 partner). Spike is a Belgian Malinois imported from Europe and weighs less than 100 pounds. Furthermore, police and military working dogs are NOT trained to fatally attack a subject they are deployed upon. Dogs used for handler protection are trained to bite and hold the subject until the subject is taken into custody. Ther is also no training method to teach a working dog to understand a hand signal to command the dog to leave the area, come back later and then attack."
