Have you ever had one of those days when you can’t seem to get out of bed? When even the thought of going to work feels like an insurmountable task? Well, it turns out that even the bravest and most hardworking of us can feel that way occasionally. Just take police K9 Jango Fett, for example. In a heartwarming video that’s been making the rounds on social media, Jango refuses to go to work until he gets some well-deserved belly rubs.
Jango and his handler, Officer Ryan Costin, have been partners for a decade. Jango has been extensively trained as a drug sniffer, rescue locator, and attack dog. He’s a valuable asset to the Anne Arundel County Sheriff’s Office and takes his job very seriously. But on this particular Tuesday morning, Jango decided that he needed a little extra TLC before he was willing to start his shift.
As Officer Costin tried everything he could think of to coax the stubborn pooch into the patrol car, his wife Cassie filmed the adorable interaction from the window. “My poor husband,” she can be heard saying, “trying to go to work, and Jango just lays flat on the ground. And it’s only Tuesday!” But eventually, Officer Costin realized that Jango wanted a few belly rubs. Once he got the attention he was after, the eager pup hopped up and was ready to go.
It’s clear from the video that Jango is more than just a working dog – he’s a beloved member of the Costin family. And while he takes his job seriously, he’s just a playful and affectionate Belgian Malinois at heart. This breed is known for its intelligence and eagerness to please, so they make such great police K9s. But they’re also great with children and other animals and love nothing more than spending time with their human families.
Jango may be retiring soon, but he’s earned a well-deserved rest. And who knows what new adventures he’ll have in his post-police life? One thing’s for sure – he’ll have plenty of belly rubs to keep him happy. So if you want to see this brave pup in action and witness his adorable love of belly rubs, check out the video below.

Because it’s a reminder that even the toughest and most hardworking among us need a little love and affection from time to time. So let’s spread some joy and share this video far and wide because we could all use puppy love in our lives a little more.
