Default Dogs Paw Badge

Looks like a cloth version of the well-known paw. Can anyone positively identify it please?

Thanks

Jon

Grey Green Acorn has it down as " 1st Military Working Dog Regiment Royal Army Veterinary Corps RAVC ?? " but as you see is unsure. See his album.

Seen it and that is what raised the question, plus they have said it is not theirs.

Must be the paw print of "The dog that did not bark in the night"?


Perhaps not the paw print of a dog?


Proper identification awaited!

I've never seen this patch before but the type of paw is similar to that described as prison officers dog handlers, it doesn't look very RAVC.

Alien dog paw?- A dog paw but not as we know it? Looks a bit X Files to me. Regards, Paul.

This looks like an American police trackers patch, to me. Not sure which state but a very similar style to examples that I have seen before.

I thought it was maybe a 3 toed sloth that’d had its fingernails cut.

Or a badge for a successor unit of the 7th Hampshires?

Am definitely thinking there is a "Raptor" connection , found a pic of a Minor League Baseball Jersey Patch (Ogden Raptors UTAH) that has a similar print.

So, perhaps something to do with F22 Raptor Squadron ?
