Looking good K9 Bruin from the Maine State Police!

K9 Bruin is a 2 year old Belgian Malinois with the Maine State Police. K9 Bruin works the Portland area of Maine and is assigned to Tpr. Justin Cooley. Tpr. Cooley has been with the Maine State Police since 1998 and Bruin is now his 3rd police K9. He is certified in patrol and narcotics work. Bruin was officially certified in patrol work as of June of 2014 and newly certified in narcotics as of October 2014. Bruin has already seen quite a bit of work on the job. In his downtime K9 Bruin likes to play outside with his ball and relax with his family and accompany them to wherever they may go. K9 Bruin has won over several of his human coworkers as he is very friendly and loves attention, however when it’s time for him to work he works with a dedication second to none. As far as dislikes go, he does not like to be left behind when he can't be taken (rare occasions). He tends to pout for awhile when Dad comes home. Trooper Cooley was told that dogs love sweet potato snacks so he cooked him up a bunch. Bruin made it crystal clear that he was not a fan. First one Trooper Cooley gave Bruin, he picked it up, nosed open the trash can door and dropped it in the trash. So needless to say...no more sweet potato snacks.

This K9 vest recipient is a Pittsburgh Steelers fan! K9 Bolt is a 4 year old Belgian Malinois certified in street patrol, and is assigned to Officer Stephen Delauretis of Lompoc Police Department in Lompoc, CA . Officer Delauretis has been a handler for Lompoc Police Department since graduating from K9 academy in June of 2011. K9 Bolt was born and raised in northern California. K9 Bolt became a member of the Lompoc Police Department in June of 2011 after completing a rigorous 5 week training academy with Officer Delauretis. Bolt enjoys long walks, kisses on the nose, and finding bad guys! Bolt is most happy when he gets to go to work and/or train. On his days off he enjoys lounging around the house, and watching Sunday football. His favorite teams are the Steelers and 49ers. Bolt has a very strong dislike to other dogs (non-police dogs), but otherwise is very loving and friendly around his extended family at the department. ... See MoreSee Less

Moustafa Elwekilهنا يعامل هذا الحيوان الوفى كشرطى ولة نفس القانون الذى يحمى رجل الشرطة والاعتداء علية كمثل اعتدائك على شرطى ويسلم الى شخص واحد يعمل معة ويعيش معة فى المنزل ويصبح عضو من الاسرة وبعدين هنا الاولوية الاولى فى المنزل للحيوان وليس للزوج او الاولاد البالغين حيث انة لا يستطيع ان يفتح تلاجة مثلا او قضاء حاجتة بنفسة ولكن باقى أفراد الاسرة يقدروا ولذلك ياتى فى المرتبة الاولى منذ الصباح وانا شخصيا كلبى تايسون عاش ١٤ سنة كان هو الشغل الشاغل لزوجتى وطبعا انا بكيت علية كثيرا ولقد رحل من ستة سنوات6 days ago

The Tehama County Sheriff’s Office in CA is pleased to announce, K9- Booker has been awarded a ballistic vest
thanks to a nonprofit organization, Vested Interest in K9s, Inc., and a generous donation
from The Hausman Family Foundation. $15,000 was donated to the charity to provide
bullet and stab protective vests for K9s in the state of California.
The following are also recipients of this donation: 1 K9 from Gilroy, 1 K9 from Mill
Creek, 3 K9’s from Montebello , 4 K9’s from Tulare County Sheriff’s Office, 1 K9 from
Lompoc, 1 K9 from California City ,and 1 K9 Alhambra.
Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. is a 501c (3) charity located in East Taunton, MA. whose
mission is to provide bullet and stab protective vests and other assistance to dogs of law
enforcement and related agencies throughout the United States. Each vest costs $950.00
and has a 5 year warranty. The nonprofit was established in 2009 to assist law
enforcement agencies with this potentially lifesaving body armor for their four legged K9
Officers. Through private and corporate sponsorships, Vested Interest in K9s, Inc.
provided over 1250 law enforcement dogs in 40 states with protective vests since 2009 at
a cost of over $1.1 million.
The organization orders the U.S. made vests exclusively from distributor Regency Police
Supply in Hyannis, MA. who also does the custom embroidery on the body armor. Vests
are manufactured by Armor Express in Central Lake, MI.
New K9 graduates as well as K9's with expired vests are eligible to participate. The
program is open to law enforcement dogs who are US employed, certified and at least 19
