Sheriff's Department looks for donations to purchase new dogs

(Continued)

"Any kind of high-intensity call involving an armed suspect, the dogs are called in," Weber said. "They're definitely cost-effective. He's not just a dog. I'd have him back me like I'd have any other officer back me."

Weber estimated that in the past year, Diesel has helped track down about 10 pounds of marijuana.

According to a press release from MCSD, the department will purchase their K-9 units from Vohne Liche Kennels in Peru, Ind., a police dog facility that provides K-9 units for police agencies across the country.
