CSPD shared more information about Luna Pixel. She has a double name because when she was brought to the unit, the unit named her pixel but she refused to answer when called “Pixel” no treat or ball was good enough, hence the double name.

In addition to her electronic sniffing duties Luna Pixel is also an amazing support dog towards investigators as they work through child exploitation cases. She has also helped out other units within CSPD and other agencies around Colorado.

K9 Luna Pixel turned 5 years old on Feb. 16. Luna Pixel has worked with the Internet Crimes Against Children Unit (ICAC) for the last three years. According to CSPD, Luna Pixel’s specialty is sniffing out electronics (cell phones, computers, SD cards, etc.).

K9 Luna Pixel loves to work and play and is a loving partner towards her handler and co-workers. CSPD said she never backs down from a challenge and will only drop her toy for a cheese ball, her favorite snack.
