A rescued Pit Bull from Florida is now the newest K-9 Officer in Stone County.
K-9 Bravo is on duty at the Reeds Spring Police Department after being rescued and trained through the non-profit organizations Animal Farms Foundation and Sector’s K-9 which help convert high energy dogs into Police Dogs.
Reeds Spring Police Chief Tracy West tells Hometown Daily News that Bravo is the second dog that he has received from Animal Farm Foundation. Gina, a pit bull mix, has been with the department for the last few years but is seven years old and beginning to slow down.
West acquired the dog at no cost to the city while the cost for training the dog was West’s travel expenses taking the trip to their facility in Texas.
