When officers responded to a domestic disturbance call in Greenwood, Arkansas last Wednesday, a gunfight killed one officer, wounded another, and wounded K9 officer Kina, who had been in her cruiser. The dog escaped the vehicle and ran from the scene. She hadn’t been seen for two days, until someone who was building a new home near the scene of the shooting found her hiding out in the vacant home. The man called police, who responded immediately, keeping Kina contained in a fenced area until her handler arrived.
The video from Channel 5 News will bring a tear to your eye, as the dog bounds to meet her best friend. She had been shot twice, but appears to be healing well. They will need to evaluate her to see if she can function as a police dog after the trauma, but she is physically going to be ok.
Our sympathies to the Greenwood PD on the loss of one of their human officers during the domestic call.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
