HOUSTON - When you think of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, super fast, long jumping dogs aren't normally what comes to mind. Tuesday night though, K9s4COPs brought out 12 K-9 officers to show off their speed and power in the Hard Dog/Fast Dog Exhibition. The competition shows K-9 officers being released to tackle decoys, and they're judged by how fast they reach the suspect and how they commit to the bite.
