Congratulations to K9 Eiger of the Chemung County Sheriff's Office in NY. His vest award was a result of the summer events attended by our volunteers in NY. Great job team VIK9s!

Eiger is a four year old long-haired German Shepherd with the Chemung County Sheriff’s Department in New York. He and his handler, Deputy David Padgett, have worked together since 2012 and are the first team to work with the department. Eiger is certified by the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services, the North American Police Working Dog Association, and the National Narcotics Detector Association. The K9 team is a great addition to the Sheriff’s Office’s overall resources and positively complements the narcotics enforcement program. When Eiger is off duty he enjoys playing ball, tug of war, and chewing on his Kong. He dislikes lying around and wants to be working or playing.

Meet the incredible four legged heroes who help protect our communities and their human partners. All proceeds will be used to purchase bullet and stab protective vest. Our last K9 calendar raised $10,000 which allowed us to purchase 10 vests. Our goal for the 2015 calendar is $20,000. Preview and purchase here: www.vik9s.org/2015-calendar/ ... See MoreSee Less

Who's our "Mr. February" of 2015 in the Vested Interest in K9s calendar?

Get your copy and preview the entire calendar of K9 heroes at: www.vik9s.org/2015-calendar/

(The photos are watermarked for social media purposes and copyright by the photographer. This is not in the actual calendar.)

We'd like to introduce K9 Knight of Plymouth, MN. Knight is a 2 year old German Shepherd partnered with Officer Steve Larson. Together they are certified through the USPCA (United State Police Canine Association) in narcotics detection, tracking and patrol work. Knight received his vest from Vested Interest in K9s in 2013. Knight loves to work says Officer Larson and is very social when off duty. (Photo by Emilie Kastner)

In addition, we are pleased to announce that Officer Larson & K9 Knight will be one of the teams providing a demo on Saturday, September 27 at our second annual event taking place at the CaJah Salon 247 Snelling Avenue, St. Paul, MN from 11am-3pm.
