That dog is probably worth at least $10,000. Your life is worth nothing to the jack booted thugs.

And who believes this "well trained" narc dogs and others like it are not capable of giving a false signal? A dogs signal should be treated just like a polygraph in court....not admissable !

Are volunteers being recruited? Is there a web page or phone number where we can organize a search?
Thanks

Ren is a female dog, and very beautiful. I am surprised that she disobeyed her handler's command when he called her away from chasing the deer. No doggie treats for her for a while.

They are capable of giving a false signal, but when they do, no drugs are found so you won't be going to court. The dog just sniffs out the drugs--the police then have to find and recover the drugs before there is an arrest.

I'm guessing you enjoy the green leafy stuff from time to time...these dogs are highly trained and their training records are subject to scrutiny in court. They only establish probable cause, which is grounds for a search warrant. "False" hits as you say rarely, if ever, occur. They may not find actual drugs, for instance, but that doesn't mean a car that reeks of reefer didn't have drugs smoked in some time before. Or bits of organic material remain in the car, but not enough for chemical testing or criminal charges.
They are a phenomenal law enforcement tool for these "jack booted thugs" you like to refer to the police as, although I'm guessing you've never lived anywhere other than the US and have no idea how civil the police are and how much freedom you actually have. Put down the pipe and go find that dog. It's probably smarter than you anyway.

Don't smoke and never called anyone a "jack booted thug." In fact, was in law enforcement for 12 years...note the screen name. I have seen many good dogs and many bad dogs in action. Just trying to protect the rights of citizens. SEE just this one of many examples...http://stopthedrugw ar.org/chronicle/2008/sep/26/s earch_and_seizure_florida_defe n

I understand that the law says dogs are to be on a leash at all times, why was this one not on a leash ? Are they exempt from this law ??

Of course they are exempt! And I doubt Augusta County has a leash law in rural areas anyway? Do they?

The police doggies are also the reason the window tint laws in Virginia exempt police cars. The law was originally drafted for 1-police dogs, and 2- transporting prisoners that needed to be hidden from common observation. But the police stetch the law to anything they feel like tinting now. The only law enforcement agency I don't see letting their troops use any ole tint they wish to is the Virginia State Police.

Police doggies are also exempt from text messaging while driving!:)

Yes, they are exempt from the leash law. Police dogs are sworn officers of the law and are working, not running around in the yard and annoying the neighbors. Anyway, the leash law says they have to be on a leash or under the control of the owner. It is highly unusual for a trained police dog to disobey its handler. You would have to see one working to understand how well they usually respond to verbal commands and even hand signals or body language.
