National Police Week begins with a tribute to the K9s lost in 2021.
Most of the dogs that succeed as a police K9 have been purposefully bred to become the best dogs they can be, but sometimes out of a shelter or rescue, comes a diamond in the “ruff.”
In this episode, learn about a couple k9 recruits that fit that description, plus: responsibilities of a K9 handler, the selection process for choosing the right dogs, and the rescue that helped bring a couple standouts into the law enforcement fold.
A foundation born from tragedy helps provide and protect K9s to law enforcement while keeping the memory of a special police officer alive. Find out about an upcoming event which will let you help them accomplish their mission.
A Washington K9 is shot during a police pursuit. Details on his condition and what led to the gunfight.
Weekend farewells to retired k9s.
