Agree have a Thai women friend who had her Labrador trained by the Airforce for many months. No discipline, does what it wants.

Bit like air forces worldwide then?

The Royal Army Veterinary Corps will auction off 15 puppies and 66 adult dogs that failed to meet the criteria for recruitment to be trained as military dogs.

Now if only that same logic applied to the rest of the population...

Expectations of price are high. I bought my German shepherd as a puppy ; he has the genuine paperwork that he is a pure bred from a number of imported champions, has a micro chip in the ear and tattooed number/name in case I lose him, all medical shots. 14,000 baht. They are hoping to start at 10,000 baht for a 3 month old GSD with a failed test and no much evidence of medical shots???

These people will do anything for money.

Can you pm contact info for them. I’m interested. Can’t imagine I would have any chance at the auction. 

Not available to farang, sorry. 

 

National security and all that.

 

What if the dog tells you stuff. Too much of a security risk I am afraid.

 

Get a mutt. 🙂

I like to keep my freedom, dogs are pussies, can't stay alone. I prefer cats.

Big tigers are dangerous but a little Pussy never hurt anyone

The rejects must be pretty useless if they want to sell them to the public.

Probably a beautiful, gentle household member, especially a Lab, if all it did to flunk out was to put her paws to her ears, and whimper, at the sound of gunfire and passing tanks.

Some dogs don't have natural aggression that an army dog needs, some are not well suited to scenting etc.

BIL in UK spent a lot of money on a 'gun-dog' pup and it just could not handle gunshot noise. Fire a shotgun within 100 metres of it and unless on a lead you wouldn't see it for two days.

I also bought a Springer from gun-dog stock and it turned out to be epileptic and eventually was having 5 or 6 fits a day. Poor thing had to be put down when it was 6/7 months.

These dogs will 99% be ok as family pets but that depends on the family.

One thing about dogs is that 'orders' to them should be in a deep voice. High pitched and squealy voices give the dog the impression it's fun, as they had with the other pups in the litter.

You can guess where the high pitched squealy voices I'm talking about come from.

Don't forget to budget/plan ahead for when the German Shepherds hips go bad as they so often do when older.

Depends on the breeding history.

Always have a GSD Hip scored by x-ray when it's a pup.

Wide open socket is bad, straight socket spur is not good but close fitting socket and ball with a nice curved closing spur and it will never have a hip problem.

This is what you don't want to see in your pup's x-ray.

As far as i know these dogs are all sniffer dogs,used to find explosives or drugs.

Some dogs do explosives and others do drugs or money searches.

I have not seen the police or army do crowd control with biting dogs.

That is a whole world in it own.

If you buy a dog there you may end up with a dog that has done obedience and other basic training.

Do not expect anything fantastic.The rejects must be pretty useless if they want to sell them to the public.

Better start with a pup and teach it what you want from day one.

Some countries do use vicious dogs for crowd control usely 3rd world countries
