LA PORTE, Ind. -- The La Porte County Sheriff's Office has added another K-9 to its Patrol Division.

In January, Deputy Jonathon Samuelson began six weeks of training with Bosco, a Belgian Malinois, at a kennel in Peru, Indiana.

Deputy Samuelson and Bosco received training in tracking, apprehension and narcotics detection.

They completed their training on February 23rd.

The sheriff's office says Bosco was purchased with funds donated to the department.

The sheriff's office now has four K-9 teams assigned to the Patrol Division.

Sheriff Boyd stated, “We are very excited about our newest acquisition. Now that Deputy Samuelson and K-9 Bosco have successfully completed their training together, we anticipate they will be making a difference and impact in the very near future with the other deputies assigned to the Afternoon Patrol Shift.”
