Sacramento Police K9, Bodie, recoversLoading
  • The Sacramento Police Department is investigating the shooting of Police Dog, "Bodie". He was shot while he and his Officer partner were pursuing a car-jacking suspect on May 18, 2012. The male suspect fired multiple rounds towards the officer and his partner, striking Bodie in the face and the paw. Fearing for the safety of himself and his partners, Bodie's handler returned fire, striking the suspect multiple times in the upper body. Medical personnel arrived on scene and declared the suspect deceased. After being shot, Bodie was immediately rushed to an animal hospital by his handler. Bodie underwent surgery for significant injuries to his jaw and mouth. Bodie is a four-year-old German Shepherd and has been with the Sacramento Police Department just over one year. His handler is a 13-year veteran and has been a K9 officer for eight years. Photo courtesy of The Sacramento Police Department
