          If you get one look for the markings. They were quickly removed from military service and most went to police departments and prisons. Where they mostly sat unused in armories.

        2. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

          Yup. These are marked DPD on the stock. Ad says Dallas.

        3. avatar jwm says:

    Although Seaman John Stenson and his German Shepard Hans, were stationed on California Coastal Patrol during WW2, there were no Shiba Inu’s available to act as translators if the Japanese invaded.
    It was hoped that because of the Axis Aliance, there would be at least a few Jap troops that spoke German.
