K-9 Unit - Apollo
Apollo was born on July 1, 2004 and is a pure-bred black Blockhead
Labrador Retriever. He was purchased by the Maricopa County Attorney's
Office for the City of Mesa.
Apollo's main duties are to sniff out illegal drugs being
shipped via mail systems, specifically United Parcel, Federal
Express and United States Post Office. Apollo is also used in
undercover operations where drugs are being smuggled,
transported, or by any means drug dealers and users try to obtain
Apollo is very friendly and loves to play. It
seems that is all he thinks about, except for eating and
sleeping. He is the best partner to have.
