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.

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

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...

Cost of the dog, equipment, and initial training/certification
OT and ongoing training/feeding/veterinary costs
Adverse publicity/high profile incident
Oh, yeah, liability insurance/cost
Did I say liability insurance cost?

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

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

GSCat - yes, it has an interesting history of introduction down there. Epic fail, lol.
