DETROIT For seven years, Detroit Police officer Robert Huckestein cruised the city streets with Cavar, an 80-pound, full pedigree German shepherd known for his natural tracking abilities.

During Cavar’s tour, he serviced thousands of police calls and won the department’s medal of valor in 2001 for tracking down an armed man hiding on top of a garage. Cavar was the only department K-9 to receive the honor.
