At just 18 months, K-9 Luca is about to become certified working for the Bedford Police Department in Bedford, Ohio.

So glad this is being addressed. These dogs and their handlers shouldn't lose their lives over other people's addictions.
Anyone caught trafficking, selling, or making this stuff should NEVER see the light of day!! Lock them up and throw away the key. `"Sometimes, the components for the drug come from China and are fashioned into large quantities of powder by traffickers in Mexico. Other times, the components appear to be shipped directly to the US and made into drugs inside the country." www.businessinsider.com/what-is-fentanyl-the-drug-that-killed-prince
This is great but if a city can’t or won’t allocate the funds to support their K-9 officers then they shouldn’t have them! We had a neighboring city that didn’t even cover ID chips so when one of their officers found his way to the pound without his collar he was almost adopted out! These dogs are wonderful assets to a community and they cost a lot to purchase and train.
National Police Dog Foundation is proud to provide a $5,000.00 grant to purchase Zeus. Donations from our supporters made this happen but we need help with donations to continue our great causeIt’s time for everyone to meet K9 Zeus!
He is Cal Poly’s newest addition to the K9 Unit. Zeus is a 2 year old German Shepherd who was bred in Germany and trained for police work. He is currently Cal Poly and San Luis County’s first EOD trained Dog.
Zeus is a very enthusiastic pup who loves to work. His future goals are to not only be amazing in EOD detection but to also be well trained in Patrol tactics and Hard surface tracking. Today is his first day of work now that his K9 brother is retired and enjoying life at home.
Zeus would not be a part of our family without the help of the National Police Dog Foundation and San Luis Sherrif Advisory, Thank you for all your support and help growing our K9 Unit. #Nationalpolicedogfoundation #inglispolicedogacademy ... See MoreSee Less
