Name: K9 Kyra
Dept: Riverside County Sheriff & dual duty as San Jacinto Police K9
Handler: Deputy Mark Wallace
Breed: Dutch Shepherd
Status: Added March 2015 on July 2nd, 2015 we donated a K9 Armor vest to protect K9 Kyra.

Thank you Rich Holt of Greenstone Materials for sponsoring Kyra's vest in loving memory of San Jacinto PD K9 Sultan, EOW 01-21-2015.

The vest we gave K9 Sultan was a size too large for K9 Kyra, who weighs in at a feisty, fifty pounds.

Sultan leaped at the chance to defend his partner.

Without a command, he crawled under a house and was taken by surprise.

Shot in the neck and dead on arrival a few minutes later at the hospital, he died a true K9 Hero.

Sultan gave his life to save his partner, and we salute his sacrifice.

Your donation truly helps protect the dogs who lay down their lives to protect us.

When we visit the November Riverside Sheriff K9 Trials, Officer Wallace will send one of his K9 friends to take Sultan's vest.
