K9 Officer Cannot Contain His Love For His Partner During Professional Photo Shoot

It’s customary that officers who work with K-9 comrades have official photos taken with their partners. Indiana Conservation Officer, Levi Knach thought that would be a simple enough task, but it seems his partner, Kenobi had other plans.

The 4-year-old Chocolate Lab simply couldn’t contain his enthusiasm and affection for Officer Knach, making for some extremely adorable pics!

The Indiana State Parks Department posted 4 priceless images of Kenobi showering his handler with snuggles and kisses to their Facebook page on Thursday.

The endearing portrait session then went viral thanks to the animal-themed Aww SubReddit where Kenobi’s charmingly unprofessional antics garnered a whopping 53,600 upvotes.

Ok, now a serious one… from aww

Despite his handsome mug and sweet personality, the Indiana State Department of Natural Resources wants everyone to know that Kenobi is a very serious officer when he is on duty. He is a highly skilled tracker and is “trained to locate a variety of objects” including venison hunted out of season and the state-protected Ginseng plant.
