Meet K9 Loki of the Howe, Texas Police Department, where Sgt. Keith Milks and K9 Loki work hard in their community to keep drugs off the streets! Loki is an 8-10 year old Jack Russell/Fox Terrier mix who was picked up as a stray in Cibolo, Texas. The staff of the local animal services department, recognized a great potential in Loki and made sure he was given the training to become certified in narcotics detection. Sgt. Milks and Loki have been a team since early Dec. of 2017. K9DF is pleased to be providing another amazing K9 with an amazing story, the gift of a Buddy Bag. We hope the bag does nothing more than collect dust while in their possession. Here’s to a long, safe, successful and amazing career together you two!

Who knew a little terrier could be a K-9? Kudos to the city of Howe, on looking outside the box to find a big dog in a small body who they could rescue and rehabilitate to a useful function!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog

A Different Kind of Coon Dog

October 29, 2017

East Asian Raccoon DogYou may be familiar with the Coon Hounds common throughout the Southern United States, but this is a different kind of coon dog: the East Asian Raccoon Dog. Although it is not bred to hunt raccoons and is totally unrelated to Raccoons, it is called the Raccoon Dog due to its passing resemblance to the smaller mammal.

I think this dog is pretty cute, but it appears it is not terribly domesticated in its native Japan. They are most similar to the fox, and are hunted for their fur. They are the only dog breed that hibernates.

What do you think of it? Yea or nay?

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

October: A Special Month

October 26, 2017

Pit Bull Standing
Time is running out on October, but I wanted to remind you of two designations this month carries: National Adopt A Shelter Dog Month, and National Pit Bull Awareness Month.

Sounds to me like a great time to visit your local shelter and adopt a Pittie.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Today is National Purebred Dog Day!

May 1, 2017

The American Kennel Club® (AKC®) invites you to join us on May 1st as we celebrate pride, predictability and purpose of purebred dogs and promote the preservation of these breeds. This year, two Congressional resolutions designate May 1st as National Purebred Dog Day® (NPDD). Senate Resolution 144 introduced by Senator Thom Tillis and House Concurrent Resolution 46, introduced by Congressmen Ted Yoho, Kurt Schrader and Ralph Abraham highlight the role that purebred dogs and breeders of purebred dogs have played in the history of the United States as well as the numerous ways purebred dogs have served U.S. citizens as search and rescue dogs, guide and service dogs, military working dogs and more, all while providing one-of-a-kind companionship.

The designation of National Purebred Dog Day was created by Colorado resident and Puli fancier Suzi Szeremy to recognize the heritage and diversity of purebred dogs and to highlight and celebrate all the ways purebred dogs better our lives. In March of 2015, Colorado became the first state in the country to recognize May 1 as National Purebred Dog Day® by joint resolution of the House and the Senate, and with the endorsement of the American Kennel Club®. Since then, both Houses of Congress and numerous states have recognized National Purebred Dog Day. In addition to these new Congressional resolutions, the states of Connecticut and Georgia also recognized National Purebred Dog Day for the first time this year. [Read more]
