Thumbs up Proud to have GSDs

I see a looooooooot of GSDs that are not exactly stellar of nerves, or stable of temperment and it usually get's me a little down that dogs like that seem to be so common. So I'm on call and hanging out at my computer watching some Netflix, Disorderly Conduct: Season 1, Episode 19 to be exact. I wasn't paying much attention until I heard barking from the speakers. Up comes a segment with a black sable male and his handler who is anouncing he's going to send his dog. Long story short, dog finds/bites bad guy, bad guys screams and whines about the bite. "It hurts" he says. LOL. Watching clips like that and reading about things like Ladylaws last thread makes me proud to have GSDs.

Some people are sports fanatics and go nuts when their team scores. That's probably the best analogy for when I get to watch a dog take down a suspect. Its a RUSH! On video that is. Never actually seen a real apprehension in person, but it's not for lack of trying. In fact you could say training police/military canines would be my dream job. If I had been dealt a different hand in life you better believe that's what I would be doing.

I agree. I have had the pleasure of working with some of military dogs while they have been training. For example demos of when the dog bites the suspect in training. The gad bite hurts even with all that gear on but such a thrill to participate and even watch such an amazing breed.

Working at a Level 1 Trauma Center, I have cared for many suspects (er, Patients...) that have received bite wounds, often very minor, from K-9's. As a group, these bad guys have been affectionately nick-named "the screamers" by ED Staff.

Back on topic: Healthy, structurally sound GSD's with solid temperments are a joy to behold!

The best calls always end by saying: "K9-3, Central. Subject is 10-15 (in custody), roll medical.

I have told this story before but it is one of my favorite "war" stories. Years ago, big car chase, SUV rammed a police car,wrecked out and 6 gang members bailed and ran. I show up, track the idiots to a big pasture area. They came out of the woods and were standing there. I was threatening to release my dog and he was sounding off of course. Now, with 6 crooks he could have only stopped one. Myself and another officer was demanding they lay down yadda yadda. They stared for a while and lay down. They were yelling at me to please hold on to that devil dog. Anyway. After all were in custody I asked them why in the heck they did not just break and run in different directions. One of them looked at me and said,well, we talked about that. We just could not decide which one of us was the slowest........ Wisdom from a crook. Funny
