Does anyone have photos about dogs used by the Wehrmacht?

I have a handful of photos but I can't tell
you much about them other than they were taken in the
Fall of 1939 on the Seigfried Line.

Modfotos - thank you, those are great. Do you know where on the Siegfried line they were taken?

Christoph - Found those already :D

I got some nice ones on eBay as well, but I'm still interested in others. I want to see what the dominant color of the Shepherds were (<-- the breed changed over the years. In the early 20th Century most were sables. Now the "classic" Shepherd is black & tan.) and what types of collars and leashes they used.

(I plan to take my GSD re-enacting...)

On the Luxembourg border near the Our River.
The photos were taken in the Fall of 1939.

No, of course.There's no dog. Here is just one photo with concretelike.The other photo with just the occasional stray dogs.The Bolsheviks actively and savagely dogs were used to rush the German tanks.

Is that an attempt at humor? If so it falls pretty flat.

How do you come to that conclusion?

Rather incoherent but looks to possibly be a reference to the "dog mines". Not sure how it is relevant to the topic under discussion in any case.
