Dog’s Nazi salute lands owner in jail


A former car salesman in Germany will spend five months in jail for teaching his dog the Nazi salute.


Roland T trained his dog, named Adolf, to raise a paw in a mimic of the Nazi salute whenever he heard the phrase “Heil Hitler,” according to the British tabloid The Sun.


The dog’s owner bragged about his dog’s trick to police, even though performing a Nazi salute in Germany is illegal.


Adolf is living at an animal shelter while his owner is in jail in Berlin. The shelter staff is working to teach the dog how to shake instead of salute, according to The Sun.


Roland T told The Sun that he was planning to have his pet, who was born on the same day as Hilter, euthanized on the anniversary of the Fuehrer’s suicide.
