K-9 Officer Refuses To Go To Work, Unless He Gets A Belly Rub I'm glad they were able to come to terms and resolve their issues.


Jango Fett is a Belgian Malinois and a K-9 officer with the Anne Arundel County Sheriff’s Office in Maryland. He and his handler, Deputy Ryan Costin, work together as a team.

But one beautiful spring morning, Jango Fett found himself almost written up for insubordination. Deputy Costin ordered him into the patrol car, but Jango Fett flat out refused. To make his point, he flopped down on the ground and wouldn’t move an inch!

These events all take place at the home of Deputy Costin, with the cherry blossoms in full bloom. It was the perfect background scenery for Jango Fett to go on strike. Deputy Costin’s wife, Cassie, filmed the whole fiasco while cracking up inside. For nearly 2 minutes the deputy tried to reason with his K-9 partner to no avail.

He raises up as if to say, “I’m just not doing this today.”

Deputy Costin finally agrees to meet Jango Fett’s demands and scratches his belly.

“So, all I need to get ready for work is a belly rub. Got it, check,” Cassie says as Jango Fett finally hops into the vehicle.

The Anne Arundel County Sheriff’s Office said this about the video on its Facebook page:

We’ve all had the Monday Morning Blues!

“My boy Jango Fett really didn’t want to go to work today!!!!!!! I had to reason with him lol lol!!!!! #k9life #oldman”

I’m glad they were able to come to terms and resolve their issues!
