My high-energy dog. She’s a mix – German Shepherd and Belgian Malinois, two very good working breeds, and it’s hard to keep up with all of her activities so I’ve signed her up for scent classes starting in a few weeks. (She’ll learn to find objects by their scent.)
In Spokane, where I live, there’s a fantastic business called The Yuppy Puppy where Jupiter goes for play dates about once a week. She loves it and it’s getting her socialized. She’s everyone’s friend. :) If you live in Spokane and have a dog, I highly recommend using their services! They also have a do-it-yourself wash area where you can give your dog a bath, and in February they are hosting the Puppy Bowl where they’ll have puppies there for adoption.
Lanc. Co. Sheriff s Office K-9 Unit The Lancaster County Sheriff s Office K-9 Unit is a specialty unit within the Sheriff s Office established in 1998. We offer a variety of different services throughout the county. Our K-9 teams are Sgt. Bolton & K-9 Ronin, and Deputy Cole & K-9 Edik. Ronin and Edik are both German Shepherd / Belgian Malinois mixes. Both dogs are trained in explosive detection and patrol. Some of the functions the K-9 teams can perform include obediance, tracking, explosive detection, building and area searches, and apprehension. The K-9 unit is not funded by the county or taxpayer dollars, and must rely on donations to sustain its operation. The costs of training, equipment, food and veterinary care are extensive but necessary to maintain the unit and to ensure we can continue to serve our community with pride.
