German police K-9s to wear shoes
|By The Associated Press |
BERLIN — Police dogs in the western city of Duesseldorf will no longer get their feet dirty when on patrol -- the entire dog unit will soon be equipped with blue plastic fiber shoes, a police spokesman said Monday.
''All 20 of our police dogs -- German and Belgian shepherds -- are currently being trained to walk in these shoes,'' Andre Hartwich said. ''I'm not sure they like it, but they'll have to get used to it.''
