Calgary police dog stabbed during an arrest is up on all fours and back on the beat

Canada makes some superhero strength canine cops.

A Calgary Police Service canine member was stabbed in the head on the job earlier this summer, but the German shepherd has fully recovered and is now back at work.

The 6-year-old K9 cop was attacked in July as he was tracking down two break-and-enter suspects at a school in the city’s northeast.

But now he’s tip top.

“Jester’s injuries have healed and he has undergone a series of tests – medical, physical and mental – to ensure he is healthy and ready to begin serving the citizens of #Calgary again,” police posted Wednesday on Facebook.

Well wishes poured in from the public and police services all over the country and beyond.

That didn’t go unnoticed.

“The Calgary Police Service, especially members of the Canine Unit, would like to thank the public for the overwhelming support following the assault on Jester. PSD Jester and his handler are grateful to everyone for the well wishes and are looking forward to hitting the streets again as partners.”

Way to go little doggy.
