Abandoned Dog Becomes New York’s First Pit Bull Officer

There are so many stories online about pit bulls are mean dogs. However, there are plenty of companies working hard to change how people view the pit bull.

Two such companies Austin Pets Alive! (AFF) and Universal K9’s Detection Dogs Program, they rescue pit bulls and train them to be police dogs. Kiah is one huge success story. She has graduated from their program, and Kiah became New York State’s first ever pit bull officer.

Kiah was found living as a stray in a grocery store parking lot. Her job now is to patrol the streets of Poughkeepsie with her partner, Office Justin Bruzgul.

Brad Croft, her trainer, said that any dog that is curious, attentive, and confident has the potential to be a K9.

Both companies have been rescuing pit bulls from the shelters, but Kiah has been their most successful graduate. Officer Bruzgul and Kiah began their training in Texas and the two graduated last November.

Kiah has been patrolling as a trained narcotics detection dog ever since. Kiah is not only helping keep her city safe, she is also helping to blaze a trail for pit bulls.
