Rachel Ray was cooking up some love for Poughkeepsie this week on her show. (Get it? Because she's a cook?)

Kiah, the Hudson Valley K-9 and the only pit bull K-9 in New York State, is pretty much a celebrity in our neck of the woods. Back in October Kiah won the ASPCA public service award.

If you didn't know, Kiah is a rescue dog from Texas. Her previous owners left her beaten and abandoned in a parking lot in Texas. Now, Kiah resides at the Poughkeepsie Police Department as a narcotics and missing person detection dog and has been on the force since 2015.

It seems that Kiah has hit the big time. This week she was featured on Rachel Ray. Kiah was accompanied by her partner, Officer Justin Bruzgul.

Rachel Ray is a huge animal lover, I'm sure you've seen her pet food commercial, and has a pup very similar to Kiah. Watch the video below of Kiah being the superstar we know she is.
