How a Bulletproof Vest Saved This Brave Police Dog’s Life

  • Published: 02 November 2019
  • Jonesboro Police K9 Gabo didn't hesitate when he was needed to bring to an end an hours-long standoff with an armed suspect, but his devotion to his job left him fighting for his life after being shot five times. What could have been a tragedy wound up a miracle, as Gabo walked away from the shooting, thanks to his bulletproof vest, which was provided by nonprofit Vested Interest in K9s. Months later, he and Sandy Marcal, the woman behind the nonprofit, finally got to meet.

                Yet they choose him as cannon fodder to lead the charge. Goes to show they do not treat him as equal and value him less than a human being.
                The description ascribes the dog the qualities it simply does not posses. It does not have a free will and obey its masters.

                        Um so let’s see. It’s a Kevlar vest, like the ones humans wear. It’s Kevlar, so it stops bullets, and thus kept the bullet from penetrating the dogs body.

                              He is back to work br lets not forget he is 8 (56) maybe in two more years he should retired he deserve to relax those 3,4 or 5 more years of his life is rare that a dog last longer than 16 but he has done enough ... people might disagree with me but this is MY PERSONAL OPINION

They need to stop using animals as weapons.
