StarMetro report yesterday:
LEARN more about German Shepherds at the first German Shepherd specialty show from 8am to 2pm this Sunday (March 13) at SJK (T) Vivekananda, Jalan Templer, Petaling Jaya.
More than 30 participants are expected to participate in the show, organised by the German Shepherd Dog Club of Malaysia.
The club’s Selangor state representative Dr S.R. Dev said the show was aimed at encouraging people to breed dogs that are physically and mentally fit instead of mass breeding.
At the interview, the press were given a demonstration of how a German Shepherd could assist in fighting crime.
Petpositive president Anthony Thanasayan, who is also a Petaling Jaya City councillor, was invited as a special guest for the event.
“It is so fitting that the German Shepherd is chosen for the show as it is a misunderstood breed.
“This is so unfair as they do a wonderful job in fighting crime and helping patients and the elderly, and providing everlasting companionship,” he said.
He was glad to be the guest for the event as he felt that “Most of the time, the disabled are left out of the events.
“I hope that the disabled community will come for the show and learn more about the dogs and be exposed to the concept of animal-assisted therapy.”
