K-9 Koda Growing Like a Weed
ABOVE VIDEO: Sheriff Wayne Ivey introduces “Koda,” the name chosen for the 9-week old Bloodhound pup, and newest member of the Brevard County Sheriff Department K-9 Unit.
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – As I travel around the county I am often asked about how “Koda” our Bloodhound is doing, so I thought it would be great to provide everyone a little update on Koda’s progress and training.
If you recall, “Koda” is the newest member of our K-9 Family that we named through a contest on FaceBook.
Koda is growing like a weed (as you can tell by the photo at right) and continues to develop with his handlers and K-9 partners toward becoming an independent member of our K-9 Search Team that is facilitated by members of our Corrections Team.
Koda not only trains to search for missing children and persons but is also a valued member of our Community Relations Team as he is always a crowd favorite at the various events he attends with us.
The picture below of Koda as a pup shows just how much he has grown since joining our agency in April.
Just so you know, the plan is that every time I see Koda at an event I pick him up to show how big he is getting.
Okay who am I kidding…he is never going to get that big, but he is growing pretty quick.
