Despite all of Tim's accomplishments, he is usually recognized as “the guy married to the K-9 handler.” His wife, Officer Maribel Feeley, joined the Glendale Police Departments K-9 Team in 2005 and was partnered with K-9 Yudy. After Yudy's retirement in 2014, K-9 Jager joined the team and became Ofc. Feeley's new partner. This means that in Tim's spare time, he can usually be found in a bite suit training with the dogs.
