Perhaps a silly question- do police departments generally shy away from all black GSDs? Wouldn't it be very difficult to see the dog and keep it safe while in pursuit at night time? Just curious.

Wildo what would you say if I said the black dogs , having been sourced from the Wurtemburger dogs, droop eared , wide chested , thick neck, thicker coats , helped with the temperament of the breed -- working background. There used to be a saying grey or black that was your working .


Isn't Cliff's dog handsome.

I'd say that's very interesting! But I'd also say my question was not based on a genetic reason for a PD to want/not want a black dog. My question was entire based on a practicality: If you are constantly sending your dog after the bad guy at night time, it would seem to me that a pure black dog would be very difficult to follow. I'm making an assumption that the handler does indeed follow the dog once it's deployed after the bad guy...

And yes, I most certainly think Cliff's dog is handsome!

I have had several solid black dogs with police departments including Keno Metro Toronto, a bicolours with so little tan that they are essentially black dogs Untitled

and black sable dogs that for all intents and purposes were "black" dogs.

turning attention back to where it should be --- Cliff and his dog Chris .

Jazzy says to her big brother.

Fantastic pics of a fantastic dog, Cliff. And I love the "rest of the story" pic of him hanging out with the grandkids after beating up on Bernhard.
