friendly big lap dog to a snarling beast with a single word from her.
Are those dogs used by police K-9 units? Years ago we had a female K-9 unit officer who'd bring her dog in to the trap and skeet range clubhouse on occasion. Big, black, kinda furry, it was a "Belgian something" that looked like it could swallow a medium sized child in one gulp. She said it was her best canine "partner" of the several different kinds of dogs she'd had.
I think they're pretty common for police use. Niece's is a little smaller than some that I've seen, he's
a very lean 85 pounds. Brown with black face and huge ears, a real clown when he's playing.
