SAFETY HARBOR (FOX 13) -

A Pinellas County K9 officer is back on duty, one day after he was injured on the job.
Axel returned to work Saturday at the Florida Sheriff's Youth Ranch in Safety Harbor.
Friday morning, his team responded to a burglary at a home in Dunedin.
Axel managed to get a firm grip on the suspect, 19-year-old Ryan Packer.
That's when deputies say Packer burned the K9's nose with a lit cigarette.
Packer faces several charges and Axel is doing fine.
