Chico the German Shepherd came out dressed to impress during their annual photo day. This handsome dog works in drug detection and as a patrol dog but he also takes his photo shoots seriously.

The dashing K9 proudly posed for his new photo and it was so adorable, the sheriff’s office shared the image on their Facebook page.

“K-9 Chico posed for his new ID badge today. He even wore a tie for the photo,” they wrote in the caption.

And as expected, the handsome dog garnered a lot of praise.

“With the exception of my own son, he’s the handsomest police officer I’ve seen. Well done Corporal Chico!” commented one user.

“He is such a handsome officer. He can definitely strike a pose! I wish him success, safety and good health to guide him in his career. When he is off duty he would be very dapper in a Christmas vest and tie!!” said another.

“Wow, what a beautiful dog. Lookout fellow law enforcement officers, your new fuzzy fellow comrade will have all the female officers drooling,” wrote one user.

It’s not Chico’s first taste of social media stardom either. The sheriff’s office kicked off National Dog Day on August 26, using a picture of the dog wearing blue shades. Handsome!

Happy National Dog Day from K-9 Chico and all of us here at the OCSO!,” said the post’s caption.

And for Christmas, Chico wore a Santa hat as he posed for a photo beside a tree along with other decorations. He certainly got everyone in the festive spirit that year!

“K9 Chico is ready for the pawlidays….are you #K9 #lawenforcement #policedog,” the caption read.

His many fans are hoping it becomes an annual shoot.

Corporal Robert Lees has worked with Chico for about 5 years. This handsome dog has been with the force for quite some time but it’s only recently he’s gotten to wear the uniform.

Bailey Myers, the spokesperson for the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, said that Corporal Lees wanted Chico handsome for the shoot.

“K-9 Chico is a valued member of our team and we were thrilled to see his picture bring smiles to so many faces. He has been a member of the Orange County Sheriff’s Office for four and a half years but in dog years this photo celebrates 35 years of dedicated service,” Myers said.

Police dogs play lots of important roles. They are highly valued members of the force, taking risks for humans like detecting explosives and narcotics, locating missing people, and finding crime scene evidence. These dogs are exceptional.

Chico loves playing tug of war and Kong food toys when he’s off duty.

He’s just like any other dog on his free time. He may even let you hug him.

“This photo has generated a beautiful response from our community and the nation,” Myers said. “Members of the Orange County Sheriff’s Office are proud to see K-9 Chico’s hard work as a patrol dog celebrated by such a wide audience.”

He is such a handsome pup!
