Some work days are furrier and more fun than others!
My partner in non crime Deputy Yeni Deciga and I had so much fun this morning meeting one of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department newest K9's!
10 week old Capo ("Boss" in Italian) is a Dutch Sheppard and will be one of our department's newest gun and explosives K9, servicing the LASD Metro Transit Services. She came directly from France and has been with her handler Deputy Maselli for 3 days. Once certified, she will actually receive a Sheriff's Deputy badge and help Deputy Maselli and Deputy Newlands service 6 locations from Ventura to San Bernardino.
Capo is expected to be about 75 pounds as an adult and will have to pass a yearly certification. She will live and work with her handler and learn the difference between play time and work time.
We were all play time, because it's not every day you get a Dutch dog, from France with an Italian name hanging out with a Guatemalan and a Mexican, all 3 with American hearts.
