    GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Atayeb Odeh is crazy about dogs. He got his first when he was one-year-old, his second aged three and third when he was five. He’s now 17 and proudly shows off Liza — a gangly and gregarious German shepherd.

Hamas — the militant group that runs the poor, Israeli-blockaded Gaza Strip — recently decreed dogs can’t be walked in markets, roads and along beaches. That ruling angered dog owners in...

    A German shepherd puppy named Gavel couldn't quite cut it as a police dog, as he was too friendly with strangers to catch criminals. Not every pup is cut out to be a police dog. One such puppy, a German shepherd named Gavel, flunked out of police training in Australia in February after he was found to "not display the necessary aptitude for a life on the front line." As BBC reports, the problem was that Gavel was "too sociable," and enjoyed meeting strangers a little too much to make a career out of catching criminals. Unfortunately, he was too much...

    As Rumor, a German shepherd, took long, elegant strides around the ring at the 141st Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, she seemed to cover every inch of the green carpet. It was as if there were no other dogs in the room, and soon that was indeed true as Rumor stood alone, earning best-in-show honors on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden. “The German shepherd standard talks about quality and nobility,” said Thomas Bradley, the best-in-show judge. “She is just magnificent.” Last year, Rumor, named after the Adele song “Rumor Has It,” was favored to win it all, but she...

    SLINGERLANDS, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Reports claim addicts have begun hurting their pets to get ahold of a pain killer given to pets with arthritis. Veterinarians at The Animal Hospital in Slingerlands said they don’t carry the drug Tramadol in-house because they’re worried addicts will use it for themselves instead of their pets. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration declared Tramadol a controlled substance three years ago. Since then, the commonly used pain medication for pets with arthritis became available only as a prescription at pharmacies. “There’s unfortunately always the risk of abuse with any of these medications, and it’s a sad...
