    Thank you everyone for the input.

    The feedback that i have received from the guys on the ground is that they have gone with 4 x German Shepherds.

    They are being trained at the moment and hopefully deployed in the New Year.

    As a matter of interest, do you happen to know the breeding program that they come from?

    I was in Zimbabwe last week. They did not purchase the dogs from any breeding program but from a farmer who has German Shepherds and had a litter of puppies.

    Yip GSD breeders are plentiful, quality GSD breeders that X-Ray their dogs hips to ensure only suitable dogs are bred, not so much.

    The vast majority have also had the working drive and lines bred out of them.
