Dog on it! Hero pooch hounds mugger

A Brooklyn dog earned his kibble the other night by chasing down a purse-snatcher on a Fort Greene avenue.

Tim, an 85-pound, 3-year-old German shepherd with a kindly demeanor, was taking his 7:30 pm constitutional near the corner of Clinton and DeKalb avenues with companion Nancy Peterson on Nov. 15 when a man walked by with what appeared to be a thick gold chain concealed under his jacket.

The irony, said Peterson, is that “Tim wouldn’t even know how to do that.” But looks — in this case, the killer glare of an animal best known as a Nazi accessory — do matter.
