FDL County Sheriff K9

The Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s new K9 team is making a difference already. Deputy Justin Weisbecker says he and his K9 partner Koda do typical patrols, but also get pressed into service for drug searches and efforts to track suspects or missing people. He says if the state patrol or another law enforcement agency in the County needs help for a drug search they get a call to aid in finding those drugs. Koda is a 20-month-old German Shepherd that was bred in Europe. Weisbecker says he was raised to be social, but can be aggressive when there is a call for it. He says he will bite to protect his handler if he needs to. Koda was trained at a training service in Iron Ridge. The team has already been deployed 40 to 50 times for different searches.
