WAR DOGS

Did you see a Dutch Shepherd somewhere? Out in public? On Television? In a movie?

Tell us about yourself: DS and Mal foster newly approved aug'12 by NADSR and ABMCR. high-functioning Autistic in nyc/hamptons in my 60's. Rescued the smartest dog i had ever seen off nyc street in 2000. Tracedog's intelligence exceeded by multiples my judgement that day. My first [and only as of 10/2012] dog turned out to be a DS, perhaps with a touch of something else, but attention to detail, behavioral traits, and physical habits, movement, and skill identical to DS. But MUCH more intellectual ability. supremely confident in all settings, fearless, very outgoing and social with people and friendly with dogs. Seldom apart in over 12 years, Trace Dog was the most important relationship of my adult life; he was my partner. He died july17,2012. i am dying without him. www.youtube.com/tracesobaka www.dogster.com/dogs/637612

WAR DOGS

Post by johninny » Wed Dec 24, 2014 8:56 am

on PBS news hour on Tuesday [ and they suggested checking additional material on the pbs newshour website ] there was a LONG segment on war dogs in which there were many glimpses of DSs. well worth watching!

I will watch this later, but I thought I would post a link for anyone else that's interested.

http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/soldiers ... ained-war/

For those that don't click links, doing a Google search on "pbs newshour website" brought me there.

today, it was noted on a ABMCR thread that the nyc Veterans Day parade this year had a Dogs of War float with dogs and their handlers.

Michael, thanks for posting that link. i just looked at the video; it is good, but unfortunately just a fraction of the extensive segment they devoted to war dogs that evening - which did have a lot of DS in the background.
still worth watching!
