Four years after being stabbed on the job, a hero U.S. Forest Service police dog in California has survived a second on-duty knife attack.

Both times, Ice refused to release his grip on a suspect, despite his knife wounds.

On Aug. 27, the 11-year-old Belgian Malinois was stabbed nine times during a raid on an illegal marijuana growing operation in the Klamath National Forest south of the Oregon border.

“Thankfully, despite the attack, no major areas were struck, and Ice will quickly recover and return to service until his expected retirement at the end of this month,” Cody Wheeler, the Forest Services’ North Zone patrol commander, said in a statement.

In 2016 Ice was critically wounded after being stabbed four times, including twice in the chest, with a five-inch blade during a similar raid in Trinity National Forest.
