    A man who trained his dog to give a Nazi salute has been handed a suspended sentence for shouting 'Sieg Heil' in public and wearing a Hitler T-shirt.
    A Berlin court found the 54-year-old German, named only as Ronald T, guilty of displaying Nazi symbols and insulting a policeman last March.

    The man received a 13-month suspended sentence on Thursday.

    Nazi symbols and gestures, including words and actions which can be seen to condone Nazism, are illegal in Germany.

    'Sweet dog'

    The dog's owner was questioned by police after members of the public in the Berlin suburb of Lichtenrade complained that they had seen the two of them saluting together.

    The dog, a German shepherd crossbreed named Adolf after the German dictator, is also said to have performed the trick in front of two policemen.

    German authorities dropped initial charges against the man for training the dog - as it was not clear if he had broken the law by doing so.

    "Adolf is a very sweet dog," said the man's attorney, Nicole Bumann-Zarske.

    "He loves cookies just like his owner!"

    A friend of the man told the Associated Press news agency that the dog had been hit by a car, damaging his right paw.

    "It's all bent, he can't stick it out anymore," he said.
