Cesar, a former military dog who was adopted by the NYPD in February, has finally gotten comfortable on the force -- by getting comfortable with his new handler, NYPD Transit Crime Unit Officer Juan Rodriguez. Like his canine partner, Rodriguez is a military vet, but he never had the chance to work with dogs during his time in the army. Now, he's making up for lost time, and he and Cesar have already developed quite a special bond.
"I think there's no better partner," Rodriguez told ABC News. "I think he's more of a veteran than I am... It is an honor to work with him. It sounds funny to say that I'm honored to work with a dog but I know I can trust him and I feel comfortable knowing that if I go out there, he'll find anything and help save lives."
