    Arent they like 10 or 15k just for one dog? They’re imported from somewhere i cant remember what country but a former deputy was telling me about it. Just wondering.

      Why don’t they obtain dogs from the animal shelters? Those dogs sure wouldn’t cost 10 to 15K! It would be the right thing to do.

        Actually they do get some dogs that way. After being properly trained for the job they cost about 10-15K apiece.

    Hey, Animal shelter folks, when you get a trained police dog for adoption, would you give us a call please!

      How about putting the doughnut down and work on training the dog yourself? Loser.
