K-9 Morty is only a year and half old, but the golden retriever is making Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department history as the department’s first cadaver dog.

Police say in the past, the department used to have to borrow a cadaver dog.

“We had to borrow a cadaver dog from another police department probably about six or seven times and we just got to the point where we realized we’ve got to have that resource our self,” said Sgt Katherine Scheimreif.

Sgt. Scheimreif, the supervisor of the CSI Unit, says when they were helping homicide detectives find the missing Uber driver last year, they had to again borrow a cadaver dog to search a lot of areas before finally finding the body of Mario Medina Chevez over the state line in York County.

After that case, the department decided to get its own. In came Morty, who is from Colombia, South America.

“He’s trained to search for human remains and that can include several different stages of human decomposition to include bone, teeth, blood,” said Morty’s handler Kenny Buhr.

Police say Buhr is also making history. Read More

Bobbi, a German shepherd, was born in Slovakia in December 2015.

Tuesday is K9 Veterans Day, when we honor canine heroes like Azza and the thousands of other dogs who have served alongside our troops. Ordinary Americans can help give these dogs the recognition they deserve by observing this day. Extraordinary Americans can support efforts to reunite them with their handlers after their tours of duty are over.

Working dogs in the American military date back to the country’s founding when Benjamin Franklin recommended their use.They will “confound the enemy,” he wrote, “and be very serviceable.” Since then they have served in nearly every American war. During the Civil War they were used as messengers and guards. In World War I, Sergeant Stubby, one of history’s most famous war dogs, saved American fighters from mustard gas. War dogs sniffed out Japanese positions in the Pacific Theater in World War II. Nearly 4,000 dogs served in Vietnam, saving 10,000 American lives. Read More

By midmorning Aug. 16, Greeley police officer John McNerney’s boss ordered both him and his dog, Cairo, to go home.

The two were supposed to leave work at 4:30 a.m. that morning, but multiple drug-related arrests across the city and, finally, a suspicious death coupled with a suspected arson had kept them out hours after that.

McNerney would later call it one of the most eventful nights of his career. Read More

ROSEVILLE (CBS13) — Legalized pot in California is leading to changes in some local police K-9 units, and the dogs trained to detect marijuana.

“Once you train a dog on something you can’t untrain them,” Roseville police officer Scott Miszkewycz said.

Roseville police are training new dogs that won’t detect the smell of marijuana.

Lance is a 2-year-old German Shepard that will be Roseville’s first drug-sniffing dog that won’t alert handlers to marijuana, only to heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine.

“Now they will not be trained on marijuana, they’ll be trained on the other three,” Miszkewycz said. Read More
