Diary entry January 11th 1936

Diary footnote, accompanying a photograph of an Alsatian: The Alsatian. Resembling the wolf more nearly than any other breed, both in size and appearance, he has earned a rather unfortunate, but undeserved reputation. Originally used in Germany as a sheep-dog, his quick intelligence, powers of tracking, and initiative have found him invaluable in police work. During the War*, the Germans used him for the carrying of messages and ammunition. He is essentially a ‘one man’ dog, suspicious of strangers, but amenable to firm handling.

*1936 was post World War One, but pre World War Two.
