MIAMI – All K-9s with the Miami Police Department are now outfitted with bulletproof vests.

Miami police spokeswoman Frederica Burden said Buster, Nas, Rex and Zeus were the latest dogs to receive their vests July 2.

The vests were donated to the Police Department by the National Police Support Team.

Burden said the department was contacted by the organization, who wished to donate bulletproof vests for the working K-9s that weren't yet equipped with one.
