Law Enforcement K-9 German Shepherds or K9 is an abbreviation and homophone of Canine. It may refer to a variety of entries, most related to dogs. The term originated in the military, where designations such as G-2 are common, making K-9 a rare official pun, being similar to "canine". The term, originally referencing war dogs, has since carried over to police, and sentry and assistance/service dogs as well.
