  • German man charged after his dog and him exchanged Nazi salutes

    Man charged in 'Nazi' dog case

    A man who allegedly trained his dog to give a raised-arm Hitler salute has been charged with breaching Germany's strict anti-Nazi laws.
    The dog's 54-year-old owner was questioned by police after members of the public in the Berlin suburb of Lichtenrade complained that they had see the two of them saluting together.

    The dog, a German shepherd crossbreed named Adolf after the German dictator, is also said to have performed the trick in front of two policemen.

    Nazi symbols and gestures, including words and actions which can be interpreted as condoning Nazism, are illegal in Germany.

    The man, named only as Roland T, is accused of wearing a T-shirt with a picture of Hitler and shouting Nazi slogans.

    Pictures in the German newspaper Bild showed the man with a Hitler-style toothbrush moustache.

    The court will have to decide whether he was mentally responsible for his actions.

    But Carola Ruff, of a Berlin animal welfare group, said there was nothing strange about Adolf's behaviour.

    "Raising a paw is what they're born to do," she told Berliner Kurier newspaper, adding that a dog could be trained to do almost anything its master wanted.

        I think the Germans are over sensitive about Hitler.

        The dog's name was Adolf and Adolf was doing the Nazi salute! A dog saluting his ideas. Whats bad about that. In fct, it is ironic.

        My brother in law has a Bulldog called Churchill. Now if he made the dog smoke a cheroot, the British could find that offensive. I told him not to even toy with the idea.:D

          Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

            It is rather funny in the abstract :)
            Supporting or defending Donald Trump is such an unforgivable moral failing that it calls every bit of your judgement and character into question. Nothing about you should be trusted if you can look at this man and find redeemable value

              :LOL this petty funny, but it also show us something about Germany. This is that they are trying to eliminate points of view with out discussion. This isn't a problem when it's the Nazis, but someday they could choose to outlaw any unpopular belief in Germany that would include my beliefs.

                  That could be one example. After all they do have a history of such things.

                    Yep.

                    Slavs, Jews, 'inferior races', whatever suits them it seems.
