Joker K-9 Dog
Birth: Jan. 25, 2005, Germany
Death: Feb. 13, 2011
Illinois, USA

Joker was born Jan. 25, 2005, in Germany, where he received basic training before he was brought to the United States and entered into the police K-9 program at TOPS K-9 Complex in Grayslake.

He was diagnosed with Type B Lymphoma Cancer in March 2010 and began 20 weeks of cancer treatments. Joker returned to duty on June 17 when the cancer went into remission, but the return of the disease forced the dog to end his duties on the street for good.

Joker is credited with helping seize narcotics worth a street value of more than $1 million. The German shepherd and officer Josh Strand, his handler, are also recognized for helping seize more than $500,000 and 60 vehicles. They assisted agencies like the FBI, DEA and Stateline area narcotics team. Joker was also a part of demonstrations for children at schools and other events.
