Tales of the Shepherd Dogs

Rex - Die ganze Geschichte

In film, canine stars perform truly miraculous deeds, some times even take over the criminal investigation themselves and go through fire for their human partners. But what does everyday work look like in reality for a police commissioner dog? What makes Rex different from a real police dog? Dogs in police service jump from flying helicopters, vault across the tops of cars onto the roofs of buildings, plunge through fire and into deep water. Policemen with drug-seeker dogs go through an old building looking for cocaine and a team of the special anti-terrorist squad, "Cobra," jumps with a specially trained dog from a height of 3500 meters with a parachute - a spectacle that was documented by a camera man in a free-fall with a helmet camera. An annual highlight for fans of German shepherds is the world championship show of these dogs in Germany. In l996, in front of 50,000 people in the Karlsruhe Wild-Game Stadium the world champion was crowned again: the most beautiful and best trained German Shepherd - and naturally also the one with the best character - in the world. The price of a star-dog among the top twenty can go up to more than two million schillings - approximately 200,000 dollars - that is, if this member of dog-heaven is for sale at all.
