When most people hear the word ‘dog,’ they usually think of a goofy, fluffy animal that’s the world’s best pet. After all, most households own at least one, be it a tiny chihuahua or a big rottweiler. But there’s also another category of dogs that don’t immediately cross everyone’s mind. It’s the working dogs. The good, professional boys and girls that are specially trained to perform certain tasks. Service dogs assist people with physical and mental disabilities or disorders. Herding dogs help out on farms. Perhaps one of the best-known classes of service dogs is that of police dogs, also known as K9.
While police dogs might be perceived as scary, especially since they usually are deployed to assist in relation to a crime, that doesn’t mean that deep down they’re not just regular goofy dogs that enjoy pets and fun-time with their owners. One such dog was spotted in a much lighter setting when a woman spotted a police officer taking selfies with his K9.

One woman spotted a policeman taking selfies with his K9 and shared it on Facebook
What drew the woman’s eye was not only the fact that the two were taking selfies, but also that the policeman was showing each picture to the dog after taking it. Gina Anzaldua Stevenson took to Facebook, where she shared the adorable photographs on a “Dogspotting Society” group where it garnered 60k likes and 47k shares.
As people’s responses and love flooded the comment section, it didn’t take long for the policeman to come across the post. And, to everyone’s joy, Andre Cloyd posted the selfies he took with his dog, Zigi. The man works as a police officer in Dallas, Texas and took some time off his work to snap a couple of adorable pics with his K9 partner.
The police officer then responded by sharing the selfies as well
Here’s how people on Facebook reacted to the photos
