Police Dog Heroes
For dog lovers everywhere, here is a title that should appeal: Police Dog Heroes by Linda Bozzo. Chapter One introduces the reader to K-9 Lucky, an officer with the Edison, New Jersey Police Department. Here is a sample of an arrest Lucky made with his human partner, Officer Shawn Meade: "Officer Meade hooks Lucky back on his leash. This time the man follows the officer's orders. He lies down on the ground."
This book gives other information, such as the best breeds for police work and how they are trained. In many cases, retired police dogs are adopted by their handlers.
