The Strafford Police Department in the state of Kansas recently employed it’s very first Pit Bull police dog. Meet Kano, a full-blooded red-nose Pittie with two different colored eyes — one brown, one blue.

The police department named him Kano after a Mortal Kombat character and he is trained in sniffing out narcotics. Kano can locate drugs such as marijuana, methamphetamine, cocaine, heroin, and ecstasy.

Kano’s handler, Officer Mason Paden, realizes that this breed is still very misunderstood and people might be apprehensive when they see the police dog for the first time.

“I have always been ‘pro-Pit Bull’ these dogs are misunderstood… Just like people, dogs are individuals too!,” he posted on Facebook. “Kano and I plan to get out there and help try to change the bad name that so many have given the Pit Bull.”

So, why did this police force decide to hire a Pit Bull instead of a German Shepherd? Continue to the next page to find out what they said.
