60 minutes

Wonderful reporting on the elite dogs in our military with some good factual information in terms of type dogs, uses, and requirements to be successful for this vocation. As a German Shepherder person it saddens me, but was not surprising at all. The good thing is sometimes it takes reporting like 60 minutes to open up the eyes of many of our breeders. To that I say Thanks!

I agree, a great informative segment, and Corbin is a true Hero! Sad to see the GSD isn't represented like the Mal but I do understand why.
This site was overloaded during the show, so many people hitting on it?

I think it is a worthy business. Former Navy Seal and the guy has a heart, not a show-boater.
He also takes retired military dogs for placement as K9 LE's or will place them in a forever home. I didn't get the feeling he is in it for the $ or ego boost.

Well spoken in the interview and you could tell he didn't see the dogs as equipment or tools, but as a partner to be utilized with the talents of a good K9.
Are you able to view the segment x11? Hopefully it will be on Hulu

I see a lot of working malinois who look like they have gsds bred into the lines and there are a lot of gsd x mal working dogs.

I just watched the show thanks to your post. Molly even watched part of it, she's in a small pen in our living room recovering from surgery. The Sheriff in my county uses the Malinois also.

Thanks for the heads up, I enjoyed that. I had a little trouble with the CBS link. Here's a YouTube I was able to watch.

Great 60 minutes episode. Gsd's are the very best protection. I have a warning sign at my home: "warning this property is guarded by the german shepherd protection service." I want a sign that says "hey thugs, yeah, come on in, i have a surprise for you!"
