Dutch Shepherds in the News (October 2017)

Dutch Shepherd at the center of Cop Killer's Trial
Story Link
http://www.cdapress.com wrote:PROSECUTORS DETAIL SUSPECT SEARCH
He and his dog, Bari, scanned the Walmart lot where the suspect had been two hours earlier before the Dutch shepherd pulled hard at the 30-foot lead as it neared a series of tractor trailers parked in the field.

The dog discovered Renfro jammed in the undercarriage of one of the trailers, the 40-caliber Glock he had stolen from Moore’s body was hidden in the framework along with two large-capacity magazines.

A hollow-point bullet was in the chamber of the Glock and the magazines were loaded.

Shaw located him by his screams.

“Ouch, ouch ow,” Renfro yelled.

As Renfro was being bitten by Bari, Shaw shouted into the dark undercarriage at Renfro to show his hands. Shaw saw one of Renfro’s hands fall empty from the undercarriage, but did not call off the dog.

“Because the other hand could have a gun in it,” Shaw told the court.

Viper Retires From Law Enforcement
Story Link
www.thejournal-news.net wrote:During his career, he was responsible for several meth arrests, had numerous successful tracks and was often paged out to other law enforcement agencies, including the South Central Illinois Drug Task Force.
In retirement, Viper will become a pet for the Roach family, and will not be replaced at the sheriff's office.
"With our budget at this point, we have to wait for better times," Sheriff Vazzi said.

Insect-sniffing dog helps Leamington, Ont., greenhouse stay pest free
"Chili is the newest member of our scouting team ... she's a registered working dog trained to find pepper weevil," said Cam Lyons, an integrated pest management scout at NatureFresh. "As far as we know, she's the only one in the world looking for this pest in a greenhouse."
Chili is labeled as a "Belgian Shepherd", but looks like some DS in there. Watch her in action here.
