The Lakewood (WA) Police Department recently welcomed its newest K-9 to the ranks.

The agency posted on Facebook, "Lakewood, meet Kona. Kona, meet Lakewood. Kona and handler Officer Bucat passed their K-9 certification in April, making Kona our third K-9 on active duty in the department. She's pretty cute, but don't mess with her!"

Kona and her handler completed 400 hours of training in suspect search and apprehension and other patrol duties.
