NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

A phalanx of NYPD police dogs formed an honor guard for a transit K-9 that was injured in the line of duty last week.

Bear, a six-year-old German shepherd was released from the Animal Medical Center on Manhattan's Upper East Side on Wednesday afternoon.

Bear was kicked twice in the mouth while assisting officers breaking up a subway brawl.  He sustained two cracked canines, two chipped teeth and a cut tongue when a woman being handcuffed attacked him. Officers were breaking up a fight between four women on a subway platform.

Bear's handler, Officer Vincent Tieniber, 36, said despite his injury, Bear kept the woman's foot in his mouth until she was handcuffed.

Ravenia Matos-Davis, 22, of Queens was charged with injuring a police animal, resisting arrest and obstructing governmental administration.

    NYC woman finds wedding dress lost after Sandy

    When a New York City dry cleaners was destroyed by Superstorm Sandy, the only item to survive was Nicole Pagliaro's wedding dress. But her name was lost to owner Hector Pacheco, who reopened after more than a year and in a new location. Pagliaro had brought the dress to him after her 2012 wedding. When the storm swamped and shuttered the Staten Island store, she assumed it was lost. But two weeks ago, she took a different route to work and spotted it in the window.
