This is every K-9 officer’s favorite call.  You may not remember every bad guy you tracked down, every gun that was found, or all the dope your dogs hit on, but you will never forget the calls where your four-legged partner located a missing child.

Great work - that kudzu looks like a tangled mess to get into/out of. I had to look up what kudzu is, as we don't have it here, lol.

I wish this was as widely publicized and commented upon as another recent incident.

I feel as though our Dept's K-9's don't get the attention of appreciation that they deserve...I even hear that many Dept's are dropping their K-9's from their Units...I know it's people who have no idea of what all the K-9's do and how they are appreciated by the families who are found by the dogs and I'm sure even the people who are stopped by dogs instead of losing their lives by being shot...
I think our K-9's are a very important addition to our Police Depts...I feel like it's definitely a mistake in not keeping them...
I wish there was more stories published about just what good our K-9's do...

Departments are dropping/not starting K9 programs due to:

Liability/insurance cost
Cost of the dog, equipment, and initial training/certification
OT and ongoing training/feeding/veterinary costs
Manpower availability/authorizations
Accreditation issues
Political correctness
Cultural "sensitivity"
Politics
Adverse publicity/high profile incident
Corruption
Liability/insurance cost
Oh, yeah, liability insurance/cost
Did I say liability insurance cost?

😣 😰

Koots,

Yes that kudzu is something else.  It takes over everything in its path, including lots, cars, houses, etc.  I think at one time you could hire a tribe of goats to come in and clear it out.  Because of its popularity our zoo named their first captive born silver back after it.  In and around Atlanta we have a bunch of streets named Peachtree, but I expect one day we will have just as many named Kudzu. 

Another nice little article.  This time from overseas.   https://www.yahoo.com/news/police-dog-retires-after-seven-years-135655360.html

Koots--

Kudzu is nicknamed "the weed that ate the south" 😁
