Rossi the dog

A man who drunkenly brandished an axe and threatened to hurt a police dog has been jailed.
Rossi the dog jumped 8ft (2.4m) and grabbed the axe from Adrian Dowdall, then dropped the axe and held his arm to stop him getting away.
Dowdall, 36, of Bentinck Close, Boughton, Nottinghamshire, has been jailed for 160 days
He pleaded guilty at Nottingham Crown Court to having a bladed article in a public place.
The court heard Dowdall had drunk between 10 and 15 cans of lager at a friend's house the previous afternoon.PC Rogers was patrolling on 24 November when he was asked to attend Bentinck Close, in Boughton, at about 05:15 GMT.
"He made threats to harm the dog. He kept coming towards me and held it aloft in his right hand in a threatening manner."
PC Rogers then deployed Rossi.
"The dog has leapt up, taken hold of the axe, spat the axe out and detained the male... got hold of him by his left arm," he said.

As explained to me, "This dog may look like a goat but has the courage and teeth of a lion".
