Hero NYPD dog honored for work during violent subway arrest
NEW YORK (PIX11) - A parade of honor for one 6-year-old NYPD police dog named Bear, who was flanked by a dozen of his K9 peers.
The German shepherds and their handlers lined up today outside the Animal Medical Center on the Upper East Side.
A salute to Bear for aiding officer Vincent Tieniber in subduing and arresting of a suspect.
“He’s always looking to protect me and I’m always looking to protect him,” Tieniber said.
Bear’s veterinarian said the pooch suffered from broken and chipped teach and a scuffed up face, but is now doing well and will fully recover.
