    1. When one thinks of a ‘police dog’ or ‘K-9’, a ferocious German Shepard naturally comes to mind. Although less commonly used, Bloodhounds are actually better used as long-scent trailing dogs. One such talented dog was JJ, the four-legged partner to Salt Lake City Officer Michael Serio. Adam David Russ reveals their story in, “Bloodhound in Blue: The True Tales of Police Dog JJ and his Two-Legged Partner”. Having read several memoirs and books concerning service dogs, I had some expect [...]


    2. I bought this book for for my middle school aged daughter who loves to read stories about dogs. I was disappointed when I read it and discovered a fair amount of R-rated language. The narrative is interesting though account after account of how JJ the bloodhound apprehends criminals (every situation is almost identical) gets a bit monotonous after a while.


    3. "Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend.Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."— Groucho MarxThen again, why not have a passion for both and read a book about a dog.I'd won this on , and found it a pleasure to read.This is the life-story of JJ and his life as a police-dog.It paints a positive image of the police department, without failing to mention some of its downfalls.It's written in a very touching way, in that I actually got attached to JJ and was rooting for him and his traine [...]


    4. Quite a good read.I won this book in a first reads giveaway. I love animal true stories and, on receiving this book really quickly, I couldn't wait to read it. The edition I received was the hardback variety and it has a very inviting cover showing a lovely colour photo of JJ, the beautiful bloodhound who is the book's main concern. There are lots of photos included in the book and I found it helpful that they are throughout the book as the action is occurring rather than a clump of pictures ju [...]


    5. Another book about a police dog and his handler, but this book distinguishes itself from the beginning by focusing on the dog; the handler is important, but as the book traces the career of Officer JJ, a Bloodhound in the K-9 Unit of the Salt Lake City Police Department, his partner, Mike Serio, takes on the mantle of protector, advocate and sidekick to the canine manhunter. An early focus of the book is the prejudice JJ encountered as a non-biting dog in a world of aggressive canines. The polic [...]


    6. Terrific book about a real 4 legged heroThis was a wonderful book about a courageous hero dog and his loving partner Mike Serio. Knowing the capabilities of Bloodhounds, Mike fought for years to gain the acceptance of Bloodhounds in police work in Utah. JJ the dog not only proved himself, but gained the love and respect of all who came in contact with him, except the crooks of course. The author Adam Russ did an outstanding job of bringing JJ and Mike alive. The writing was at times humorous, ma [...]


    7. I got this book as some kind of deal on and hadn't expected to fall in love with it but I did. This is not only an amazing insight into K9 police officers, but the journey of a bloodhound trying to get accepted in a rather exclusive German Shepherd occupation. I was shocked that it seemed so elitist. Why not have bloodhounds in police departments all over the country if they can scent better than German shepherds? This is also the story of JJ who worked in Salt Lake City and his many cases incl [...]


    8. Interesting story, lots of facts but not too heavy. I wish I'd had more time to know JJ and Mike, they seem like a great team. Surprised about the difference in the handling of Bloodhounds vs German Shepherds. I didn't know that Bloodhounds were considered a non-biting police dog.Learned something new and hope you do also.!Recommended


    9. What an amazing story. I loved the story of JJ and Officer Serio who handled him. I was so impressed with this officer who wanted to serve above all else and was given awards for the unselfish service he gave along with his dog. What an inspiring story! I have a whole new respect for bloodhounds. What beautiful and intelligent animals


    10. I was amazed at the way the book drew me in. And also by the deep devotion between dog and handler that led them to make a real breakthrough for the good guys at times when all hope seemed lost. The story was a classic tale of greatness emerging when unlikely heroes buck the system, told with a fresh voice, compelling wit, and edge-of-your-seat pacing.


    11. This was a very inspiring book and not at all what I imagined it would be before I started. The author has a great sense of humour and gives the reader all the elements of a great story - suspense, action, tears and laughter.It was also a great chance to learn about the history of the Bloodhound, which I was not expecting.Very enjoyable read!


    12. Very interesting. I love dogs and didn't know anything about Bloodhounds. What a great dog and terrific for Police work. Every police department should have several in addition to the Shepherds.I got all teared up when JJ passed.


    13. I got this book free from in return for an honest review!This book was enjoyable.It was very nicely written with very good photographs that illustrated the story very well.I love dogs and this book brought a lump to my throat in several places.


    14. This is a really interesting and fun book about the first bloodhound police dog in Salt Lake City. I didn't know what to expect, so I was pleasantly surprised when I laughed and cried. I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves dogs and police work - this book has them both.


    15. I'm a sucker for animal stories, and this one was also interesting to me because it is set in Salt Lake so I knew some of the events and places. I really enjoyed the information about how tracking dogs are trained. It is competently written, and makes a strong case for bloodhounds as police dogs.


    16. This book was great I got to a few things in a new way personally for me. I love how the book throws you straight in to the action of what JJ and Serio have to go through. I recommend this book to people who want to learn about the works of a police officer and his police dog partner.


    17. What a delightful book! If you love dogs and police stories, this is the book for you. JJ is the most lovable dog and he always gets his man. I didn't know much about Bloodhounds before, but now I wonder why every police department doesn't have one.


    18. I’m a dog lover, so of course I enjoyed this book. It was an extremely fast read. I enjoyed learning about bloodhound and how police dogs play a role in solving crime.


    19. Lots of cute pictures of the bloodhound, but the writing was not great and the story was really padded to make it longer. Really only recommended for serious dog lovers.






    20. This book was very well written. It informed me in greater detail of the importance of a police K-9 unit. It was funny, sad, and entertaining.
