'They're Great Dogs' A Baltimore City Police Officer Said Of The Departments Newest K9's

BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- Baltimore City Police is adding eight new K9's to its force, the department announced.

Six of the newest K9's are German Shepherds, one is a German Shorthaired Pointer and one is a Belgian Malinois.

They are all about a year old and were born and bred in eastern Europe, specifically to be police dogs.

Each dog was $8,000 each. They were paid for with a grant from the Department of Homeland Security.

The dogs came to the United States a few weeks ago.

They went to a kennel in Pennsylvania, before coming to Baltimore to work with their new partners with whom they'll also live.

Their names are Loki, Hugo, Jax, Manny, Macky, Ranger, Alec and Jazz.
