CANNON BEACH- Which dog makes the best police K9?
If you said German Shepherd, you’d be … Wrong! It’s a Belgian Malinois. The breed is so smart that even the German police are abandoning their trusty shepherds in favor of the Belgian import. But even a class of K9 all stars is bound to have a poor performance.
In Cannon Beach, Oregon, that dunce was a 2-year-old pooch named Cash, who was fired for incompetence in October.

Before Cash completed his training with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, he was returned to his original owner, Tami Schultz of Clatsop County Search and Rescue, in Astoria.
Cash the K9 consistently fell behind the pack. He was afraid of heights. He was scared of loud noises. And instead of sniffing drugs like a proper police dog, he just barked like hell crazy.
According to report, Cash was trained for four weeks, between September and October, before giving up on him believing the dog development would progress but wasn’t progressing at all.
