Marik joined the Superior Police Department in 2014 and works with Officer Nick Eastman. A black, short-haired German Shepherd, Marik was bred in Slovakia. He is trained as a dual purpose K-9, meaning he can sniff out people as well as narcotics and other evidence. It’s intense work, but with a name like Marik, which translates as “of Mars the god of war, warlike”, we know he’s up for the challenge.
Officer Eastman says, “It has been very rewarding working with K-9 Marik and watching him progress into a police canine. He’s a loyal partner who loves to work at making Superior a safer place. K-9 Marik is still learning his job; however, he gives 100% each day he goes to work. Marik has a great personality and is always eager to play with his Kong.”
