  1. EDC Handler James Volpe admires his canine partner because “Gelato is a great worker.” Like all of MSA’s canine employees, Gelato enjoys being a regular dog in her free time and she loves to play at home with her soft Frisbee! Gelato’s favorite treat is a Greenie dental snack…which explains her show stopping grin!

  1. Ken Collins and his canine partner Dryden are famous! Ken was recently interviewed by Valerie Stetz on Your World Uncensored, where he discussed his accomplished career in law enforcement and his life with Dryden. Of course, Dryden was present at the interview where she showed fans her favorite trick, standing up on her back legs! Ken jokes that she reminds him of a horse rearing up when she does it!  When she is not working she loves to play keep away with her two Beagle siblings, she loves stealing their squeaky toys and running around with it until they chase her!

  1. EDC Cindy makes regular office appearances with EDC Supervisor Vinny DeSantis. Cindy is an office favorite, and is well known for her love of belly rubs and banana peels! You can often catch her lounging around the office enjoying all the attention. With a face like hers, our employees just can’t resist. But don’t be fooled, Cindy is always ready for work with Vinny whenever he needs her!

  1. EDC Carousel is double the trouble with when she hangs out with her canine pal Caleb! Carousel knows how to work hard and play hard. When she is not working with her handler, Jim Castanzo, you can find her hanging out poolside. She learned that from Caleb, Jim’s retired NYPD Narcotics Canine. They certainly make a great pair!

  1. Our girl Irene runs MSA headquarters and is an obvious office favorite! Irene loves back scratches and even uses a friendly growl to let you know you’ve hit the sweet spot. When Irene is not soaking up the love, you can find her loyally following her handler, Director of EDC Ellen Dickert, around to meetings. When Ellen is away from her desk, Irene is typically standing guard eagerly awaiting her return. They make a great team!
