This honor guard loves belly scratches and can roll over.

Bear, an injured NYPD K9, passed through a phalanx of NYPD police dogs when he was released from the Animal Medical Center on East 62nd Street yesterday.

The police dog sustained four broken teeth and a laceration to his tongue when he helped Police Officer Vincent Tieniber subdue and arrest a suspect.

The brave dog was injured when he and Officer Tieniber tried to break up a fight involving four women on the 4 train platform at 59th Street and Lexington Avenue. One of the women, Ravenia Matos-Davis, 22, reportedly kicked Bear twice in the mouth. He continued to hold onto her foot until Officer Tieniber could place handcuffs on her.

Matos-Davis was charged with injuring a police animal. She was also charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and obstructing governmental administration, cops said.
