They’ve got the nose for drugs. And the mug for melting hearts. After a long day of sniffing out stashes of crack and other illicit substances, police dogs across America are sometimes urged to strike a pose next to their well-seized quarry. These cuddly canine cops almost always obey, and they’re naturals in front of the camera. The resulting snapshots speak for themselves. You have the right to remain smitten. Whoosagoodpowicedoggie?

No big deal. Nikko, a Portland, Oregon, police dog, plays it pretty cool after sniffing out 50 pounds of cocaine during a traffic stop last week.

Ado gets a little stoic every time he ruins the day of some sad weed dealer in Hanover Township, Pennsylvania.

Marco, pictured next to 12 pounds of marijuana and 8 pounds of cocaine he muzzled up to in an SUV in St. George, Utah, has seen it all before. When you’re done playing around with that camera, he’d like to get back to work.

Two words: meth lab. Two more words: badge collar.

This handsome little crime fighter in Clinton, Connecticut, could hardly wait to get his paws on this sizable stash of weed, hash, cocaine and Oxycodone.

This salty dog from Arizona’s Sherman County Sheriff’s Office is all business.

Spencer, of the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office in Oregon, had a little trouble finding room to show off the 14 pounds of pot, half-pound of cocaine and $32,000 in cash he nabbed during a traffic stop.
