Famous German Shepherds

German Shepherd Heroes

Many German Shepherds have fought in both world wars. On the side of the Allies and in the Soviet army, there were probably no less of them than the Germans. And although we do not know their names, many of them became famous among those whose lives were saved.
Leo’s dog worked at customs at the Amsterdam airport. This German Shepherd is famous for having calculated about three hundred people who smuggled drugs. Thanks to her help, 3000 kg of hashish, 1000 kg of marijuana, 28 kg of heroin, and 18 kg of cocaine were seized. The dog, after the end of the service, was given a pension and placed in a hotel for senior dogs. Leo is honored to be mentioned in the Guinness Book of Records.

On the Monument of Fidelity, installed in Togliatti, there is also a German shepherd. The owners of the dog died in the accident, and for 7 years the shepherd did not leave the scene of the tragedy.
