German Police Dogs Issued With Boots

Good news for police dogs in the German city of Düsseldorf: They are getting US-made boots with thick rubber soles so that they don't cut their paws while chasing criminals around the city. The dogs will wear the boots while policing demonstrations and patrolling the city's old town. "When they're on assignment in the Düsseldorf old town we often get problems with discarded bottles and other rubbish which could injure the animals," a police spokesman said. The boots, which have thick rubber soles, were bought in the US and the dogs will start using them on assignment in March, once they have got used to them, police said. Source: Spiegel

They should do the same here in the US. It would make the lives of the dogs that work with my friend David Sanabria (former NYPD k-9 officer)much easier and more enjoyable. Take care!
