Santa Ana Police Officer Luis Galeana stops by with his partner K9 Puskas to give us a full update on his recovery and what life is like back on the force!
It was back in February that Southern Californians watched an exhilarating car chase which ended with the heroic actions of a Santa Ana police dog named Puskas.
While the K-9 unit did successfully take down the criminal suspect in typical K-9 fashion, he suffered severe dental damage in the process.
Puskas has been a regular on the Tim Conway Jr Show, you can hear past interviews below.
Original story below
The K-9 hero who made headlines this week is finally recovering from a long surgery on Tuesday morning.
Monday evening, the Santa Ana Police Department was out in full force to stop a suspect on a wild car chase. After many attempts to get the driver to slow down, the car finally dies on the suspect. That's when the Santa Ana Police Departments Canine Unit hero came running out of seemingly nowhere. If you missed it, check it out in the video below!
During the wild take down, the poor dog lost 6 of his teeth including all of his incisors. He went into surgery Tuesday morning and was out that night. Officer Luis Galeana, Puskas' handler, joined the show to give us an update of his post-surgery status. Turns out Puskas doing great, just a bit sleepy from all of the pain medication.
I think it's safe to safe, Puskas was properly trained. Good Job Santa Ana PD and Officer Luis Galeana! We all hope Puskas feels better.

Rest up, heros!
