Police dog returns to work after being stabbed on duty

Key highlights

  • Kaiser was attacked with a knife during the investigation into a suspect during Lent. Despite the profuse bleeding, the dog clung to the suspect until police arrested the man.
  • Because his stab wounds were deep, he had to stay in treatment for several months. But now he has been put back into service by the Croydon Police.
  • Police shared some before and after pictures of Kaiser and wrote that he and his handler PC Woolcott are back on active duty.

A brave police dog that was stabbed to death on duty in May has now returned to work after rehabilitation.

Kaiser was attacked with a knife while investigating a suspect in Kent. Despite the profuse bleeding, the dog clung to the suspect until police arrested the man.

Because his stab wounds were deep, he had to stay in treatment for several months. But now he has been put back into service by the Croydon Police.

Police shared some before and after pictures of Kaiser and wrote that he and his handler PC Woolcott are back on active duty.

“After being brutally stabbed in June, PD Kaiser and his handler PC Woolcott were greeted this morning by our Borough Commander Dave Stringer and The Mayor & Mayoress of Bromley.”

“Kaiser was absolutely delighted to receive a new toy that was given to him by the mayor for his courage,” Croydon Police wrote in their Facebook post.

Some of the knife attacks pierced Kaiser’s bones, Superintendent Emma Richards said.

His injury looked severe in May, and Richards had told reporters it would be months before he returned to duty.

Kaiser isn’t the only police dog to achieve hero status this year.

A police dog named Arlo who was shot on duty returned home as a hero earlier this year after its successful operation.

The dog was shot in the leg while serving with the Thurston County Sheriff. He was chasing an armed driver.

Vets said the dog would need at least two surgeries because one of the bullets had entered his spine.

Fortunately, the vets were able to remove the bullet, but some fragments still remained in his body as the doctors determined it was too dangerous to reach, but it won’t harm his health.
