  • European K-9 arrives at Sheriff’s office; will help find drugs

    A K-9, used to sniff out drugs, arrived at the Henry County Sheriff’s office Monday, Oct. 29.
    Deputy Kyle Stewart will work with the male German Shepherd he named Solo.
    The dog is two years old and was born in Europe.
    According to trainer and owner Sherman Dotson of K-9 Specialties, Stewart and Solo will get a transition week, where the two will bond together.
    It’s important that the dog learns to trust Stewart and accept him as his “forever dad,” Dotson said, so at first, the two won’t train together, but live together as owner and pet.
