Here’s how this equipment both helps Kion and Deputy Foley on the job.
The Ranger K9 Trauma Kit provides sterile, veterinary grade, K9-specific supplies to assist an officer in providing aid to their K9 in the event of an on-the-job incident or injury. This kit includes a canine oxygen mask, along with other first aid items, a quick reference sheet for K9 vitals and dosing, and comes in a heavy-duty, canvas bag which is embroidered with emblems ensuring that it is easily identifiable for K9 use.
K9 Kion is a 2.5-year-old German Shepherd certified in Patrol, Tracking/Trailing, and Narcotics. He is assigned to Deputy Dakota Foley of the Lee County, Iowa Sheriff’s Office. During his first week on patrol, Kion made three drug arrests. K9 Kion is very sociable, energetic, obedient and an intelligent dog. For a young German Shepherd, he is very mature, with a lot of potential. He is named after the lion cub in The Lion King and Kion means “Leader of the Pack” and “Young Warrior”.
