Let’s Hear It For K-9 Lalo!

You gotta love a story with a happy ending. WBTW, Channel 13 in Myrtle Beach, recently brought us the story of Lalo, a Bloodhound who was instrumental in reuniting a family when the K-9 found a 9-year old who had wandered off to a friend’s house without telling anyone.

Lalo’s partner, Deputy Timothy Davidson, says the dog gets quite the workout as they have similar situations crop up almost weekly.

Great job Lalo and Deputy Davidson! Thank you both for your service.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
