The Gulf Shores Police Department in Alabama put their newest K-9 to the test -- a push-up test that is.

In a seven-second video posted to their Facebook page, Nitro is seen getting "warmed up" alongside two police officers, Officer Cowan and Officer Hancock, to Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger."

The 2-year-old Dutch Shepherd's debut is part of the holiday campaign "9 p.m. routine" that encourages residents in the community to "remove valuables and lock up before going to bed," according to Corporal Josh Coleman, the department's social media coordinator.

"Sergeant Bobo wanted to get the K-9 unit involved," Coleman told ABC News, adding that Bobo knew the video would "hit it out of the park."

The footage has been viewed more than 730,000 times since it was posted Saturday.
