Sioux County Sheriff's Office Welcomes Newest K9
January 13, 2023 10:20am
We are excited to introduce our newest K9 Rocky, a one-year-old German Shorthair Pointer from the Netherlands.
K9 Rocky was purchased from I-80 K9 in Atlantic, Iowa, and is trained in narcotic, methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin detection. Deputy Agustin Martinez will be his handler and the duo spent the last 10 days in Atlantic training and forming a close bond, becoming certified.
Although Rocky is now drug certified, he and Martinez will begin training for tracking this spring.
Rocky loves kids and this K9 team is planning to work in our schools; they did a demonstration in Atlantic with 50+ fourth graders and they did excellent!
Sheriff Jamie Van Voorst said, “We couldn’t be more excited; this is going to be an outstanding team working right here in and for Sioux County! We look forward to this newest certified team getting illegal drugs off the streets.”
