Dog's Hitler Salute Could Land Owner in Prison
A German man is set to appear in court for teaching his dog, Adolf, a somewhat questionable trick.
The man taught Adolf - a black sheepdog-mix, to give the Hitler salute on command.
Adolf raises his front right paw straight up and out on command.
The trick came to the spotlight after police were called when the owner, 54-year old Roland T was shouting at passers-by.
According to the website, Ananova, when police arrived, Roland shouted "Sieg Heil" and Adolf raised his paw in salute.
Roland faces charges of "using symbols of unconstitutional organizations" and could face up to 3 years in prison.
Adolf has been taken to an animal shelter.
Residents there are not holding the dog accountable for what his owner taught him.
