K-9 LUCY
K-9 Lucy was born July 12, 2011 and joined Desert Drug Dog when she was 18 months old. She lives with her handler Amy. Typical of the classic Malinois, K-9 Lucy is known for her irrational exuberance, and cannot wait to get to the next work site and do what she does best--sniff for drugs. Friendly and happy, K-9 Lucy is serious about her search and is beautiful to watch on the job.

She also specializes in Public Relations for the company and can often be found enjoying attention from clients, students, and residents after her searches.
K-9 CASH
K-9 Cash was born on February 5th, 2014 in Phoenix, Arizona. He is the son of K-9 Reba and has remained living with his handler, Dana. When he was young he was solid black and therefore was named after Johnny Cash "the man in black", he since has gotten more brown on his body. K-9 Cash was started on his Narcotics Detection at an early age of 5 weeks old and loves his job. He also has a great sense of humor and loves to make people laugh.
K-9 BRAVO

K-9 Bravo has competed in Agility, Dock Diving, and other various dog sports and took up Narcotics Detection at 9 years old. He is proof that you CAN teach an old dog new tricks. Bravo has given many public demonstrations and loves to please the crowd with his fun tricks.
K-9 TARZAN
K-9 Tarzan was born on February 5th, 2014 in Phoenix, Arizona. He is the brother of K-9 Cash and also started his training very early in life. He had a brief career with Desert Drug Dog but quickly received a "better offer" and is now helping keep the streets safe as part of the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office K-9 Unit. Tarzan and his handler Deputy Charlie are an amazing team!
K-9 RANGER

Like his litter mates he also started his training early. K-9 Ranger worked for Desert Drug Dog until July of 2016, when he was recruited to work as a patrol and detection dog for the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office. Although we were sorry to see him go, he is an outstanding dog and we know he will do a great job keeping bad guys off the street!
K-9 BAILEY
K-9 Bailey was born on October 13th, 2005 in Denmark. She came to live and work in Arizona when she was approximately 2 years old. She is a narcotics detection dog and a security patrol dog. She retired from both jobs in July 2015 and now lives out her life with a wonderful family learning to be a house dog.
K-9 Caela
K-9 Caela is a three-year old narcotics detection dog from Denmark. Her extreme drive  makes her an ideal working dog as she will "do anything" to earn play time with her toy. She is extremely athletic and has great stamina on the job. For a dog so focused on work, Caela can switch to the most affectionate and loving companion when given the cue, "Go say hi." Caela never met a stranger! 


The Belgian Malinois

The breed of choice for Desert Drug Dog is the Belgian Malinois. The Malinois loves to work and thrives on action. Although our dogs are beautiful, social and well-behaved, remember that they are bred to work; in general, without a "job" this breed is not generally recommended for a house pet  as they can become destructive out of boredom. Our dogs are professionally trained and we spend countless hours keeping current with that training.

It's best to consult with veterinarians and dog trainers about any breed you are considering to ensure their suitability to your home, family, and lifestyle.
Our weekly staff meeting, held outdoors as weather permits.
