Drug Dealing Guard Dog Gives Up To Cops

Pic shows: The line of suspected drug dealers and gang members lying facedown in a line alongside the wall and the dog. A snap of a dog the decided to lay down in submission alongside its owner during a drug bust in Brazil has gone viral. The picture shows the line of suspected drug dealers and gang members some with tattoos lying facedown in a line alongside the wall. But if officers were expecting any trouble from the gang’s guard dog, their fears were soon put to rest when the dog also lay down alongside its owner, stretching its head along the ground in a clear sign of doggy submission. The incident happened during a joint police and military operation in the neighbourhood of Vargem Grande, in the south Brazilian state of Santa Catarina. Police spokesman Filippo Valdez said: “The officers had been observing the gang for some time and when they arrested them they recovered a substantial quantity of marijuana and cocaine, as well as weighing scales, guns and ammunition. “There was a male dog that was barking when officers burst onto the scene but when it saw its owners obeying the command to lie down, it ran over and laid down as well.” Brazilian animal psychiatrist and dog trainer Barnie Rico said: “The dog lying on its back exposing its belly is a classic sign of submission in the dog world. By exposing its soft underbelly to any potential attacker it is showing that it doesn’t mean any trouble. The dog is also turning its head away as looking at the potential enemy can also be seen as a sign of aggression to another dog. It is clearly a very clever animal because it saw the rest of its pack given in, and decided to copy them.” Online users pointed out that with local police thing to simply shoot dogs on site when carrying out armed raids, it was probably a good move to make sure everyone realised the animal didn’t cause any trouble. It was reportedly not arrested with the rest of the suspected gang. (ends)
