Hi Angela - thanks for this - this article from 1934 suggests some thought Rajah even had telepathic powers. Regards, Jamie

Love this story but..we are trying to get recognition of Rajah the wonder dog of Methven in 1929-1936. He was a German Shepherd who was very clever and was sought after by Dr Lewis of Hollywood USA.... to go there and replace RinTinTin. But he stayed in Methven and assited the Local Policeman and also could perform 52 tricks. Amazing dog.
