Oh dont be a size queen. Mr Murphy is a great k9 asset. But if only the big kids should be posted, then you two should include Trakr.
Trakr, together with police officer James Symington, Trakr helped dig through some 30 feet of unstable debris at the World Trade Center "ground zero" site and locate the last human survivor of the attack. The dog's bravery was so celebrated that he is going to be cloned for use in other police rescue forces! Braving horrific conditions, the pair helped locate the last human survivor of 9/11 under some 30 feet of unstable debris.

|In this video a great takedown by a K9 officer helps save a baby and possibly the life of fellow officers.|

|What was the point of that video? It does not relate to the intent of my thread, to HONOR K9 cops with their stories. Why can't you start your own thread if all you want to do is bash?|

Bee take the tin foil off your head for moment. This dog appears to be saving a baby and possibly the life of some officers depending on what was in that bag the man grab's. If you watched the video before commenting how could you not be impressed by the gusto of this officer. He was being flung around like a rag doll by the fat man and still took him down. I liked the fortitude of this officer, why don't you think he is relevant to your and gg's thread.

|Rightey-O. That's what was meant by that video. Uh, huh. Not like you couldn't spin it another way, is it? I'm not going to argue with you, sorry. Just stay on topic or start your own.|

I remember this officer from last year as well. I thought this guy warrants hero.
Dog tried to save fallen partner, officials say
Deputy Sheriff Kyle D. Pagerly's K-9, Jynx, tried to save the mortally wounded officer
by Jason A. Kahl
Connor, 25, took cover in a sniper's nest at the top of a steep hill in the woods Wednesday night when the fugitive task force of federal, state and local officers team went to the property on Pine Swamp Road with a warrant for his arrest, according to state police.
Jynx alerted Pagerly to Connor, who was in full camouflage, troopers said. Moments later, Connor stood up and refused an order to drop his semiautomatic rifle, investigators said. Pagerly and Connor were both fatally wounded in the shootout that ensued.
And District Attorney John T. Adams said that after Pagerly was shot, Jynx grabbed his partner's pants leg and tried to pull him to safety.
It might have been one of the 3-year-old German shepherd's last official acts as a member of the sheriff's department, according to Sheriff Eric J. Weaknecht.
"When we went to notify Pagerly's wife, one of her first questions was, where is Jynx?" Weaknecht said. "He will be retiring. Jynx is part of their family and the family has been torn apart enough already."
City police said some police K-9s can handle the loss of a handler and return to duty, but opinions were mixed.
According to a former K-9 officer, the bond between a police dog and its handler is so strong that the officer's death can end the animal's working life.
"They spend more time with each other than a human does with his family. You really get to know each other," said Amity Township police Chief Kent A. Shuebrook, who served on a K-9 team for six years during the 1980s with the Toms River Township Police Department in New Jersey.
"The limiting factor is how old is the dog," Shuebrook said. "The average utility of a K-9 dog is seven or eight years."
Shuebrook said he wasn't commenting specifically about how the Berks County sheriff's department should handle Jynx.
Pagerly and Jynx had been working together since the sheriff's department's K-9 unit was formed in 2009. Little more than a puppy then, Jynx was trained to detect explosives and track people.
Shuebrook knows what the bond between Pagerly and Jynx was like.
"It's the best partner in the world," he said. "They trust you. You are the leader. They have faith in you and look out for you, and you for them.
"You spend all those hours training together, working together, in the car together. He's never in a bad mood because he had a fight with his girlfriend."

Rookie HPD K9 nabs three suspects on first night
Sunday, April 08, 2012
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A new police dog tracked down three burglary suspects northeast Houston on its first night on the job. Officials said police responded to a silent alarm around 4 am Sunday. When they reached the store, they saw three men running out the back of the business. Officials said the men ran into a wooded area and police called in a K9 unit. It was a new dog and a new handler.
The dog found all three suspects, and even came out with one of the men's shoes in its mouth. One of the suspects was bitten, officials said.
The alleged burglary trio was arrested. Police said they found a video game system that was taken from the store on one of the suspects. It was unclear what else was taken.

|Remember folks we need to include links when we copy off other sites. Also, most people go off topic here or there and if you want us to start getting down on people we can but please refrain froming doing it yourselves. I just watched a video on the petting thread and it wasn't on topic so again we can start cracking down, but I don't think most members want that.|
