Dutch Shepherds in the News (April 2018)

Shelter dog becomes a police dog in Burlington, NC. Link
www.thetimesnews.com wrote:Shadow, an estimated 1-year-old Dutch shepherd, is the newest addition to the Burlington police force.

Arias says they’re always on the lookout for higher-energy dogs that might be better suited for police work than being house pets, and Shadow fit the bill.

K9 Paco is retiring after nearly six years on the force Link
www.dailytribune.com wrote:Paco, a Dutch shepherd who serves with the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit...

For Paco, the transition from work to home is an easy one. Garrison said different collars and environments will change his demeanor.

“When he has the chain collar on he is more calm, like when we go camping” said Garrison. “When I put on my uniform his behavior will change. He has a switch.”

Dutch Shepherd helps find missing girl Link
the-journal.com wrote:Melvin said his K9, a Dutch shepherd named Quiddity, had hardly begun searching for the child before she was found. According to Ray’s report, the girl was found after her grandmother checked her residence on County Road Y. Medics were called to the scene to check on the girl, and reportedly said she was in good health.

Woman in Indiana "pays it forward" by donating a K9 bullet proof vest. Link
Ruth Myers said her decision to save up enough money to purchase a K-9 bulletproof vest for the Seymour Police Department was the result of someone doing something nice for her.

Ace is a 6½-year-old Dutch shepherd and has been working with Surface on the streets for five years.

*Note - I initially struggled with whether to share this story, but I felt like it was important. At a minimum, it's a lesson to be learned about mixing serious dogs with carelessness.

Marshall County woman recovering after dog attack Link
www.kten.com wrote:A retired police dog was shot and several other dogs are set to be quarantined after a woman was mauled in this small Marshall County community about eight miles south of Kingston.

...

A volunteer firefighter who is currently away from home battling wildfires in northwest Oklahoma owns the dogs involved in the incident.

...

The man told KTEN he adopted a retired police K-9, a Dutch Shepherd, to help with his security work.

...

Michelle Slaughter was released from the hospital on Friday afternoon. She's expected to make a full recovery.

There's more info if you click the link, but apparently she was just out walking, and someone had left the gate open.

There's a lot of unanswered questions to the story, though.

Meet Mick, DPD's newest K9 Officer Link

Mick graduated from the K-9 Academy at the end of last month. Decatur Police say he's already credited with finding large amounts of illegal drugs in the area, all in his first month of work.

AKC National Agility Champion - "Flash" Flasher Dasher, a Dutch Shepherd handled by Amanda Wilson

You can watch Flash's run at AKC.tv - starts at 55:47

It's interesting to hear the play-by-play announcer say "That's a Dutch Shepherd. You don't see them very often."
