This is Spike of the Davao City Police Office (DCPO). He was a bomb sniffing police dog who served during the term of the then Davao City Police Director, Police Superintendent Isidro Lapeña, under the direct supervision of PD1 Roger Dy, a certified canine trainer from the Special Response Group.
Spike was a indispensable member of the DCPO's Canine Unit since 1996. He was a hardworking canine, having served in the clearing operations during important events in the city including the Kadayawan and the Araw ng Dabaw celebrations. He was also responsible for the clearing and paneling operations whenever the President of the Philippines and other high ranking officials and dignitaries came to visit the city.
Spike's distinguished accomplishments included the finding and recovery of an IED found at the basement of Gaisano Mall on March 5, 2001, and the finding and recovery of an IED inside a plastic container that was left in a public utility vehicle on March 11, 2003.
Spike retired in 2008 after serving the Davao police force for 12 fruitful years.
