Being chosen for a K-9 position is not only a competitive process, it entails a huge commitment from the officer. Kendall, as an example, had to relocate from her apartment into a house with a fenced back yard since Diablo stays with his handler 24/7. According to Kendall, Diablo is fantastic to work with and is learning very quickly, especially in basic movement commands. The WPD looks forward to a long and successful career for both Officer Murphy and K-9 Diablo.
