Levi came to K9MD at just eight weeks old. He’s a black German shepherd from a top line of proven working dogs – his Dad is a Police Dog in Denmark. Levi’s quality pedigree brings with it a high drive and strong work ethic, while his character is laid back and charismatic. He can pursue things with a powerful single-minded determination or he can roll onto his back for a tummy rub. Levi is a real charmer. He loves people and already has the local vet nurses under his spell. Levi is K9MD’s poster boy, and we’re pretty sure he knows it.

After a period of basic training and socialisation Levi will undergo scent detection training with a professional dog trainer in our controlled clinical facility. But we need your help to raise Levi. He needs regular vet checks, quality food and so he learns to remain calm yet confident in every environment he needs to travel far and wide. So join us on our exciting journey as Levi grows up to become an amazing K9MD Medical Alert or Detection dog. You can follow Levi’s progress on Facebook. Together we can make a difference.
