A bizarre story from Canada Story Link

Following a complaint, RCMP found a woman at a motel with dogs.
www.innisfailprovince.ca wrote:According to BC SPCA, the dogs were being kept in crates too small for their size in a poorly ventilated area, with little to no access to water.
Allegedly, she has a court order not to be in possession of animals.

She also matches a description of a woman suspected of stealing dogs while posing as an officer.

They're still trying to find the owners of the dogs, but at least one is a Dutch Shepherd.

Klassic Kennels was assisting in finding the owners.

Interesting! I hadn’t thought about the implications on K-9 units in that regard.

Did you see the story about about the drug dog in Colombia that has a $70k bounty on its head by a drug cartel? It was a GSD, I think.
