    Hope the dog fully recovers.

    Now, as for using an animal for human policing means where the animal gets subjected as a “dog of war” is depiscable.

    Once again, a form of animal slavery.

    Cops need to do away with using K-9 dogs in chase down situations……..do human cops go chasing down suspects without back up, hell no, but that is because they dont want to get stabbed in the neck waiting for backup while bleeding out.

    See how human cops are all too willing to set up a K-9 for death.

      Just in from HOJ…Dog owners need to release their dogs immediately! As Dog owners we are slave owners? Yep that’s right. Maybe we need to pay reparations for once owning slave dogs. [edit]. Dogs have been work dogs for thousands of years. People own them for protection and with most dog owners like myself they are treated really good. K-9 dogs are no different. They spend more time with their handlers than the Handlers spend with their own kids and spouse. They are family members who do a dangerous job and the one thing you’re missing is this. The handler and the dog would give their life to each other if it was on the line. Thank you Johnny and Handler for keeping us all safe. You’re both awesome for the job you do, which most people don’t even think about. Take care and get well soon Johnny

      • Thank you! My dog is a working dog and a member of our family. Her instincts and training are her gifts that add to our life, and others as well.

      • Henchman Of Justice

        “As if the end of the world was here” that made it so imperative to send the dog to get stabbed by a pot grower on the run.

        “People have been enslaving animals for thousands of years”, it does not make it right.

        HOJ won’t send family members into a death trap scenario, but that is the difference between being humane and being a “dogs of war” slave owner.

  • Thanks Kym for keeping us updated K-9 Johnny’s situation.

  • Thanks for the up dates.its hump-day!!

  • Sending prayers for the Pup!!!

  • Prayers for K9 Johnny.
