NAME THAT PUP: BSCO Gets New Bloodhound
By Brevard County Sheriff // June 14, 2013
PUPPY acquired through Jimmy Ryce Foundation
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office is proud to announce a new “recruit.”
With the recent retirement of K-9 Montana, the Sheriff’s Office has acquired a puppy to follow in Montana’s paw-prints. The new puppy will be trained and handled by Corporal Jared Conaway.
BCSO’s new Bloodhound is an 8-week old male that was acquired through a breeder as a donation from the Jimmy Ryce Foundation. Jimmy was a child abducted and killed on September 11, 1995. The Jimmy Ryce Foundation was formed in honor of him and to provide awareness of the protection of children.
The Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s input to name the puppy. You can submit suggestions via the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Official Facebook page.
The winning name for the puppy will be selected on Friday, June 21. The person who suggests the winning name will be recognized by the Sheriff’s Office, be invited to the swearing-in ceremony where the puppy will be officially named and receive a photograph with the puppy.
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.”
