Seattle’s K-9 Police Force

Like most cities, Seattle’s law enforcement officers rely on the talent, work ethic, and fearlessness of trained K-9s and their handlers. Here photographer Jordan Stead pays tribute to these dogs with a gallery of portraits.

For the full gallery, visit here.

Jordan offers this playful disclaimer to the portraits:

“Minor retouching was used to omit copious amounts of saliva and toenail tears from the photo shoot backdrop.”

That’s OK, Jordan. We’re all dog lovers here— we get it.
