Pit Bulls are notorious for being ferocious and difficult to teach. However, one fearsome Pit Bull has defied all of those clichés. The first Pit Bull officer was assigned to a K9 training program in New York. Kiah was the first Pit Bull to be certified as a K9 officer in the state of New York. She is currently a member of a street patrol unit. Kiah had drugs detecting training.


Kiah’s tale is made even more intriguing and motivating by the fact that she was formerly a stray puppy. She was discovered in a parking lot and saved. She trained and graduated alongside Officer Justin Bruzgul, and they’re now a team that helps keep Poughkeepsie’s streets safe.

Look at Kiah, standing tall and demonstrating to everyone that Pit Bulls can be amazing K9 police as well; you’d never guess she was a stray in the past.

Kiah had been abandoned in a grocery store parking lot, and after being rescued, she trained as a K9 cop with Officer Justin Bruzgul in Texas.

Kiah appears friendly and charming, yet confident enough to be a K9 cop.

She is an excellent addition to the team.
K9 cops must go through extensive training.

Kiah appears solemn and proud in his K9 suit.
