Carlow Police Department Welcomes K-9 Officer

Duke, the puppy police dog

The Police at Carlow University recently added a new member to their team. Welcome K-9 Officer Duke! This officer comes to Carlow from Indiana, Pennsylvania, and is a four-month-old German Shepard.

Partnered with Lt. Chris Fabec, Duke will be extensively trained in explosive detection and will be seen at campus related events. He will be trained as a single-purpose dog, and not trained for apprehension. He is believed to be the first K-9 Officer for Carlow University. He is full of energy and is currently in the socialization portion of his training. 

Although Duke is a dog, he is still a tool for the Carlow Police Department. He may be actively engaged in a working mentality, so please ask his handler, Lt. Fabec, to engage prior to freely petting him.

Duke shared a little more about himself with us:

What is your favorite Carlow memory so far?

All the ladies of the West Wing giving me hugs and kisses.

Who would you most like to swap places with for a day?

My handler, so I could tell him what to do. 

If you could be any animal, which would you be?

Clearly, a German Shepard! Just the adult version, because I am eager to start protecting Campus. 

Who inspires you? 

Rin Tin Tin.

If you could visit anywhere in the world you've never been, where would you go?

Huntington, CA -- they have the best dog beach! 

What's your secret talent that no one knows about?

I am really good at bringing smiles to people's faces, and brightening their days! 

What is your favorite quote?

"What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight; it's the size of the fight in the dog." 

Do you have advice for the Carlow students?

Although I am very friendly, please ask before you try to touch me.
