about

Tales of brilliance and heroism from the crime-fighting dogs at the Police Dog Squad—told by the passionate cops who handle them. Brilliant and heroic, the police dogs and handlers of the Dog Squad put themselves on the front line every day to fight crime and keep citizens safe. Meet Ruger, the go-get-'em police dog that bit through a couch to catch a cat burglar, and Butch, the courageous dog that put its life on the line to take down a man armed with a knife.  There's Michelle, the police detective turned Dog Squad handler, whose expertise as a trainer earned her an unbeatable two-dog tracking team; and there's Digger, the police dog so loyal it stood guard over its handler, Gary, after he was gunned down by Mad Max. These stories of the Victoria Police Dog Squad's courage in the face of danger give a rare insight into the high-octane world of police dog work, and into the bond that exists between a police dog and its handler.  Handlers share stories of training some of the best and brightest canine cadets, then taking them out onto the job—where dogged pursuits save lives.
