Police Scotland arrests man for Nazi dog video – I’ve asked authorities to advise dog owners on how to behave their pooches online
Police in Scotland have reportedly arrested a 28-year-old man from North Lanarkshire on hate crime charges over a video he allegedly posted online of a dog gesturing a Nazi salute.

I’ve asked Police Scotland to confirm the arrest and to further advise on what precautions dog owners can take to avoid causing offence online. Stay tuned.
Thanks to Peter M. Heimlich for linking me to the pug-nacious video above.
