The National Police Dog Foundation promotes education and awareness,
and raises funds for the purchase, training, and ongoing veterinary care for active and retired police K-9s.

K-9 Purchasing

PURCHASING

Most law enforcement agencies do not have a budget for the purchase, training or protection of police K-9s. They heavily rely on generous public and corporate donations from people like you.

K-9 Training

TRAINING

Training and equipment get expensive. The National Police Dog Foundation assists law enforcement agencies with the costs associated with the initial process and training of the K-9s.

K-9 Protection

MEDICAL

K-9s put their life on the line every day to protect us. Law enforcement agencies constantly request assistance from the National Police Dog Foundation for the ever-increasing cost of medical care.

K-9 Axe was shot and killed after officers responded to reports of an armed subject outside of a banquet hall at 26211 Harper Avenue.

As officers arrived on the scene they encountered a subject who was armed with a rifle and handgun. The man fled on foot with officers in pursuit. K-9 Axe was deployed for an apprehension and was shot by the man.

Officers returned fire, killing the subject.

K-9 Axe had served with the St. Clair Shores Police Department for two years.

K-9 Axe was named in memory of U.S. Navy SEAL Petty Officer 2nd Class Matthew Axelson who was killed in combat in Afghanistan in 2005. Courtesy: www.odmp.org

K-9 Axe and 26 other K-9 heroes who we lost in the line of duty in 2018 will be honored on May 11th, 2019 during Police Week in Washington, DC.

On 1/29/2019, the United States Postal Service announced a four-stamp set planned for release later in 2019 entitled “Military Working Dogs”. Each block of stamps features a stylized depiction of the 4 most commonly used breeds by the military (German Shepherd, Labrador Retriever, Belgian Malinois and Dutch Shepherd) with backgrounds of red, white, blue and gold to represent the American flag and patriotism. The art for the USPS set was created by DKNG Studios in Los Angeles and art director Greg Breeding designed the stamps. ... See MoreSee Less

This is really great! The only problem I have with this, is that they are using the now “normal” AKC German Shepherd Dog with a sloped back.

I take it you mean CURRENTLY favored. My rescued Dobie helped me meet a WWII veteran who was assigned to dog training during his service and worked primarily with Dobermans.

I am disappointed that the USMC war dog, the Doberman, wasn’t included, but I do love the stamps! I’ll have to get some.

Michele!
