Officer Smith and Stryker
Stryker is an 8 year-old Belgian Malinois. Stryker was born in France then, imported to the United States to be a North Little Rock PD K9.
He is the oldest dog in the K9 Division. Although he is the old man in the unit, he loves getting in the patrol car and going to work every day. When at home he is generally sleeping or playing with his Pit Bull sister. Stryker is very loyal and attached to his pack.
Stryker is trained as a dual purpose narcotic / patrol dog. This covers a very large area of responsibility, but he loves a challenge. His favorite part of the job is playing hide and seek. He loves finding new people who will play with him. While on patrol Stryker enjoys watching people through his unit window and saying high whenever he can. He is always alert and focused on the task at hand.
Stryker’s favorite toy is anything that his human is holding. He loves belly rubs and bath time. He is very partial to stuffed animals, pillows, furniture, blankets, dish towels, lawn ornaments, water hoses, and the list could go on.

Koba looks forward to work from the beginning to the end of his shift. While not working or training, Koba likes to play tug, go for a run, and playing fetch

Sergeant Lyon and Tio
Tio is a 2 year old Belgian Malinois. He was born in Belgium then imported to the United States by a civilian in Mountain Home. The civilian in turn donated Tio to the North Little Rock Police Department. Prior to accepting Tio, our training officer conducted a thorough evaluation of him to determine if he would be qualified for our program. Tio passed with flying colors. We are extremely grateful to the citizen from Mountain Home that contacted us with the opportunity of Tio. There are very few times when a citizen believes a K9 would be a qualified Police dog, that the dog actually passes the evaluation. Tio was the first dog in 20 years to be accepted as a donation.
Tio is a dual purpose Explosive/Patrol dog. He is our newest Explosive dog. Tio loves to locate explosive odors and show off his abilities. When Tio is at work he also loves to bump your leg with his head to let you know that he needs attention.
Tio lives at home with his brother, a Jack Russel/Corgi mix and his sister a Ridgeback. His brother and sister enjoy chasing and barking at Tio every day when Tio and his handler play fetch. His brother will routinely walk under him, which seems to amuse Tio.
Tio’s favorite toy is an item that can be thrown and returned. He loves chasing water as it comes out of the hose and disassembling anything with stuffing.
