Anso “František” Sharpend comes from a private kennel in southern Bohemia. He has been preparing for service with the Police of the Czech Republic since he was a puppy, he completed the necessary certification of an outing dog at 21 months after an 8-week course at the Training Center for Dog Handlers and Service Dogs in Býchory.
The burly Belgian shepherd has had a varied career. During the five years he served, he went on countless trips, assisted in the apprehension of several even dangerous criminals and took part in many search operations. “He protected the safety of his handler, but also of the other guards. In the last three years he became a ‘professor’ who was able to evaluate the situation he was in and behaved accordingly. No commands were needed. In short, a reliable dog in all respects,” praised police spokesperson Pavla Kofrová.

I promise you nothing but comfort, and in the summer, hooray for the sea!”
