Heel, Hitler 24/12/2007
This is from the world’s best tabloid, The Sun, so if it’s not true, it’s got to be bloody funny.
A HITLER-loving German has been jailed for teaching his alsatian-cross Adolf how to perform a Nazi salute.
The ex-car salesman, known only as Roland T, trained the dog to raise its paw sharply when he heard the words “Heil Hitler”.
Performing a Nazi salute is illegal in Germany — but Roland boasted of his pet’s talent, even to police.
Adolf is now at an animal shelter while his owner spends five months in a Berlin jail. Staff are attempting to retrain the dog to do a shake-a-paw movement instead of the salute.
Berlin shelter spokeswoman Evamarie Konig said: “We want to stop him raising his leg too high.”
Roland, 58, who says Adolf was born on the same day as the Fuhrer, may not get the pet back.
He was planning to have the animal put down on the anniversary of Hitler’s suicide.
