Police Dogs Get Shoes

Police dogs in the German city of Duesseldorf are being fitted out with blue rubber shoes to protect their paws while walking the beat.

Apparently shards of glass and sharp objects get stuck between the cobbles of Duesseldorf's old town and are dangerous for the canine squad. 20 Dogs are being taught to work and walk in the shoes.

The shoes are modelled on a design made for sled-pulling Canadian huskies.

lol, I had a dog years ago and bought rubber doggie boots for her. She wouldn't move when I put them on her. That was the end of that!

Dogs are stepping into our shoes now...

Does my avatar seem more homely? ;)

We have a pair for our little Yorkie to wear out in the snow for when she does her "bidness".

Usually, she'd rather go in the house though. ;-)
