Animal artist for over 15 years that decided to dedicate my life to painting portraits of working dog (K9) heroes. I only paint recognized military, contractor, SAR, police and PTSD Service dogs, not therapy dogs or family pets. Created the K9 Hero Portrait Project in March of 2013 while completing a portrait of MWD Gabe K153 SSD. During the completion of his portrait, I became aware of several K9's who were either killed in action or gravely injured, all within one week. Although I know working dogs are always faced with danger, it wasn't the events that drove me to create this project, it was the reactions of the handlers that were captured in photos and networked on the web. Each one was completely distraught at the loss or the injury of their K9 partner, who to them, was their family member. That's when I knew that these were the men and women I wanted to paint for. Each painting is donated to the handler, or, in the case of a retired working dog, to their family. Since the project is completely out of pocket, I help fund the program by having commemorative coins minted with the completed portrait on one side. The handler or family receives the first in the series, and the rest are sold to help fund the project and also be used to help donate to other working dog or military PTSD programs.

Project Paws Alive is a nationwide non-profit raising money to provide protective K9 equipment to Law Enforcement, Fire, Search & Rescue, and Military K-9s. We also provide specialized Pet Oxygen Recovery Mask kits to Fire, Rescue, and EMS in the US. Our mission is to provide combo stab/bullet-protective K9 vests, K9 first aid field trauma kits, K9 cooling vests, K9 heat alarms, and other vital K9 equipment to Law Enforcement, Fire, Search and Rescue, and Military K-9s throughout the US.
Project Paws Alive is an all volunteer 501c3 non-profit and does not get paid. Funds are raised by donations, sponsorships, and fundraisers. All monies go directly to purchasing equipment.
We exist because 92% of all K-9 units and agencies nationwide do not have the ability or funds needed to purchase this vital K9 equipment to protect their K9s. Many K9 units are run solely on donations.
K9 units are typically classified as "non-essential specialty units" nationwide; which means they receive little to no funding and cannot afford the high-dollar protective equipment that can save the lives of the K9s and, in most cases, can also save the officer's life.
Please join us in helping to "Protect The K9s Who Protect Us" nationwide. Consider making a tax-deductible donation or becoming a volunteer at http://ProjectPawsAlive.org/
Author, Adam David Russ and Officer Michael Serio of the Salt Lake City Police K9 Unit in Utah join us to talk about Russ’ book ,"Bloodhound in Blue: The True Tales of Police Dog JJ and His Two-Legged Partner" which highlights the life of 10-year-old K-9 JJ, who worked for the Salt Lake City Police Department with Officer Serio. The book takes you on an amazing journey as you learn how with JJ's ability to sniff out suspects and Serio's apprehension skills, the duo caught murderers, rapists, and drug dealers, often tracking them over fences and through crowded city blocks and dense forests. They also captured one of Utah's Most Wanted. Together the team changed the way police units operate today and both JJ and Officer Serio were awarded the Salt Lake City Officer of the Year Award, an award that Officer Serio has won twice; the only officer in state history to achieve this.
K9 Lakota served alongside Officer Travis Fox for less than four years but made remarkable achievements in his short career, among them more than 80 apprehensions, 28 drug seizures, six vehicle seizures, the recovery of stolen property, and the seizure of $60,000. K9 Lakota's career was ended prematurely en route to a home invasion call when Officer Fox and K9 Lakota ended up in a serious car accident. The accident split the car in two, ejecting both the officer and the dog from the car. K9 Lakota was not expected to live but his strong spirit fought on and after four surgeries (with more expected in his future), he is enjoying life in retirement. His work and his will to fight and live have shown his heroic side and he has brought people all over the world together for his cause. His story is now being used to help change laws for Law Enforcement Officer K9s so that they are better protected by their departments in case they are injured in the line of duty. K9 Lakota has been a true hero both in the line of duty and in retirement.

A few weeks back we began a discussion on BSL. At the time we decided that we would go country by country and discuss BSL all over the world. This week we will be discussing BSL in Ireland. For many of you, all you know of Irish BSL is what was brought out during the Save Lennox campaign. Today we are going to delve a little deeper and take a look at the origins of BSL in Ireland, it's restrictions and what it means for Irish dog owners. Join us at 3 pm EST for this in depth discussion of Irish BSL. If you would like to call in and have your say the call in number is 646-716-6583.
With the recent suicide of world renowned dog trainer Sophia Yin, we decided that having a show dedicated to the darker side of animal careers was appropriate. Both of our hosts have worked as trainers as well as activists. It's not all puppies, and happy-fun-smile-time. There are many upsides to working with animals, but just as many downsides. Join us as we dicuss this sensitive, and important subject
In the first half, host Julie Forbes talks with Cera Reusser, founder of Chase Away K9 Cancer, a foundation started in memory of Cera's labrador, Chase, who she lost to Canine Cancer. Chase Away K9 Cancer has raised over $726,000!
In the second half of the show, Julie talks with a representative of Pets Best Insurance, to talk about how pet insurance works, and how you and pet could benefit from the support of pet insurance.
Today we are planning on talking about BSL in Denmark, but in doing our research we came across Denmark's "dirty little secret" DOG BROTHELS! Yes I said DOG BROTHELS and that means EXACTLY what you are thinking it does. Tune in at 3 pm for this discussion.
To be a part of this discussion call in on (646)716-6583
This weeks show was intended to be about BSL in Ireland, but both of our hosts have had extremely full weeks, and little to no time to prepare. We refuse to talk about BSL when being unprepared, so we've decided to do a catch up show. We'll be discussing what has happened over the past couple weeks for both Chis and Janette, updating you on the dog fighting issue in Chris' hometown area, and of course, talking about all things dog. Tune in and as always call with any questions, comments, or concerns.
