K-9 Team

Pedro (Badge 27-120)

K9 Pedro was born in May 2010 in Slovakia and was imported to the United States a year later through Castle’s K9 to begin training as a Police K9.  Pedro is a cross between the German Shepherd and Belgian Malinois breeds.

Shortly after his arrival, K9 Pedro joined the Carlisle Police Department and has received hundreds of hours of training since.  K9 Pedro and Officer Kurtz complete a minimum of 16 hours of ongoing training each month to stay proficient in the many tasks for which they perform in service to the Carlisle community.
