The puppy’s name is very important as it will serve him through his entire career.

“The Sheriff’s Office K-9’s are an integral part of our search and recovery program for missing, endangered and wanted persons,” said Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey.

“They actively track and search for people and articles of evidence. We would like to thank the Jimmy Ryce Foundation and the breeder, Pam Andrew, for their incredible support.”
