Family, Friends & Fellow Officers Say Goodbye To Rescued Police K9

15 days ago   |   By iHeart Dogs

Many police K9s train for their roles since birth, but not Champ. Champ the German Shepherd, Pit Bull, and Boxer mix broke barriers when he started his role. As a rescue dog, he proved that any dog can change the world if given a chance. And he likely opened doors for many other rescue pups after him.
