Dog’s Nazi Salute Lands Owner In Jail For Five Months

hitlerdog.jpgA dog trained to give the Nazi salute has landed his owner in jail. Adolf the part-Alsatian mongrel raises his right paw whenever he hears the command “Heil Hitler”.

Now his owner, a pensioner named as Roland T, has been jailed in Germany, a country where all Nazi symbols or salutes are now strictly forbidden.

The owner had previously been in trouble for shaving illegal Nazi insignia into the dog’s fur.

He was investigated and given a suspended sentence for that offence, but it is the salute that has led to a five-month prison term from the man from Berlin.

The dog has now been adopted by a Berlin animal home and should soon be given a new owner – and a new name, Adi.

Animal home spokeswoman Evamarie Knig said: “He is healthy and obedient and we think he will find another owner quickly because he is so famous.”

  1. a country where all Nazi symbols or salutes are now strictly forbidden.

    It’s not just a matter of “now”, it has always been outlawed in Germany since the end of WWII.
